    it looks more like an illumination source for night time in flight refueling than MAWS

    No spoon feeding to lazy dumb kids. Google is a good place to start


    Looks like ejection ports are for dumb bombs, not for AAM.
    Why there are no markings/numbers on the plane?

    Maws sensor on the butt near the base of the v tail and other area of plane

    Processor unit related to maws may be on the top of v tail

    Earlier when i said that it was a light like that installed on upgraded Jaguars (pop out) to assist in night time refueling, some of you argued how can a side looking light help in this regard and insisted to be MAWS on the JF-17, but now we are back to initial judgement.
