So it's confirmed from latest tender that MWF will not be having any DSI.. Earlier models had a single spillduct that pushed half the boundary-layer air below the fuselage, while sother half entered in it to cool the engine & escape from rear (refer to this post of mine if you didn't know that).

But now they have went back to the LCA style, with a slot over the wings spilling out ⅓rd of the air & the other third leaving from below.

It would seem, @IndianHawk that the MWF empty-weight you stated would be more like the correct value!

(MTOW—Payload) would yield the clean-takeoff weight of 11000kg.. That minus the 3400kg internal fuel would be 7600kg.
So the 7850kg stated on previous Defexpo placard could be including pilot, pylons etc.
