Well is it more suitable for ground missions vs rouge elements ?

Can a gun be mounded on this plane ? Machine gun etc or Guided ammunition ?

It would be ideal to use smart bombs on this plane for ground operations if used for mission ?

How did the Venezuelans managed to put missiles on the plane can we put any of our missiles on this craft ?

All trainers can carry weapons to a certain extent,they don't have to be modified.

Its a good trainer only needs a bit more engine thrust and 30 degree wing sweep to give it a feel of a lead in fighter trainer.

K-8s can carry weapons on its 5 hard points. But those mostly include unguided rockets, unguided bombs, and also pl-5 and pl-7 for air to air role. Here is a link:
