    It looks weird. Too flat, too draggy, IMHO

    No gun nozzle except for a front hole.
    Seems different compared with the displayed in Zambian JL-10.
    Maybe a kind of imagery pod for live firing.

    Regards

    To admit, I have no doubts ... it's strange but it is a gun-pod (at least IMO)

    probably a way to keep gun fumes clear of the engine intakes?

    Forcing the fumes down through the grids, you mean?

    Am I correct in assuming that these particular trainer aircraft are not meant for Aircraft Carriers. Since their landing under-carriage is not sufficiently reinforced.

    IMO a perfect proposal replacing the CJ-7.

    However can anyone explain how much legally Diamond can propose, develop and sell such a version to China? I think it is still an Austrian company.
