    Mig-15, plane even older , however, looking at these photos, I remain of the idea that they are hard points for bombs

    Well that's some very restricted real estate to the rear is the landing gear to the front is the Guns.The Rear one is even worse. Then again the North Koreans have done weird before.
    Mig 15 was on that border line when planes were built to kill with guns but then missiles became practical.

    Every Time I have ever seen a Mig 15 loaded for bear the extra weapons are on the wings.
    The Bomb racks on the Egyptian Mig 17 were a Crude DIY mod made in the 70's.

    the similarity with the change made in Egypt leads me to think of a strong military technical collaboration in the past of the two nations, and not just the simple purchase of weapons.

    Probably the sending to Egypt of Mig-17 instructors pilots of DPRK, (also present during the 4th Israeli Arab war -Yom Kippur)

    may have facilitated the exchange of information on the changes to be made on the aircraft

    other photos of Mig-15 or 17 with hard points for bombs connected to the fuselage, it makes me think that North Koreans have implemented this additional capacity on the majority of this old model of aircraft

    That image doesn't inspire confidence... one looks like it's about t fly off the other looks like it's banging into the hull.
