Were the conformal fuel tanks present in the final rendition of MK2 before metal cutting was started? I guess this was a mod done later during design finalization stage which led to program's delay.
Conformal Fuel Tanks does not affect design changes much. It is just an attachment like a Drop Tank with a difference of flushly fitted with no way to drop. Also, from the picture shared it looks like a symmetrical design. Meaning there will not significantly changes in CG and CP of the Aircraft.
