    Enclosed weapons pods can be an option.

    Can't we make weapons ( missiles or bombs) stealthy with shaping and RAM. If we can do so then internal bay will not be necessary anymore and the space can be utilized for other things.

    We need fins and stabilizers for aerodynamics.

    It is actually quite similar to my idea of a command fighter. Not as capable as actual AWACS in that role, but far more survivable. Though my command fighter was more of a twin-seat Su-35.

    But yes, a good idea.

    There is no link, I gave up on designing it because a) I did not have enough time, and b) I could not find adequate engine and radar designs.

    -It can be used for AWACS role with quite few BVRAAM for defence if required
    -Long distance Stealth Platform to launch upto 6 long distance cruise missiles.
    -Stealth bomber role

    No sir. My design is radically different and unique. No one has been able to even think about such a design till date. What ever I have posted till date are old designs. The final design has undergone RCS measurements and the results are shocking.

    You are taking it too literally - I mean roles, not design.
    Scale up options am trying to hint.
    Why are you taking offense?? no one disputing or talking of you design or their uniquiness, my whole post was focused on sharing possible roles if scaled up

    Mine is a fighter design and up located intakes do not help in dogfight. So if the design itself is no go, where is the question of scaling it up?

    baba ma siraf ya kaha tha, whatever your msa design, if you scale the design to even bigger scale than your msa can too do following roles.
    -It can be used for AWACS role with quite few BVRAAM for defence if required
    -Long distance Stealth Platform to launch upto 6 long distance cruise missiles.
    -Stealth bomber role
    Where is the question, of airintake is located where. Just like twin-seat Su-35 talked above is not similar to MSA, other than stealth part in pic shared nothing is same as MSA.
    You are taking offence, on something I haven't said or meant. (was only meant to give you further ideas, which you may pursue or not based on your assessment)
