It's a full mock up on display at Chengdu. I read a interview reason why PAF hasn't gone for 4 BVR load out is current radar can only guide 2 missiles at a time so they don't think it would be of practical use. For Blk 3 this would not be a issue on new radar so can expect such a load out then.

Because of its small size class it probably would have much use. Generally Buddy systems are top off not fuel up.
Think of it like a flying Jerry can. Where a dedicated tanker would be a flying gas truck. That Jerry can can get you out of a tough spot if you run outta gas it means you can get to a gas station. Where as the gas truck sets up a mobile gas station.
