No it can carry a destriyer in there , will release it near water surface , we can use it in pangong tso .
Still it is no match for galactic fighter 17
Galctic fighter uses Kejriwal air to ground and air to air missiles it perform dharna wherever it hits Pakistan Fizzaiya calls it aloo ka sona missile

we can get something like that for tejas mk2 as in an interview it was already said that rcs is less than mk1
We can get it but we need to float a tender for a private company and give them contract to develop systems, which will boost efficiency unlike every burden on DRDO, this will be better.

Sooner or later ot will be required. So yes it will be worked upon. And if it is made for Tejas Mk2, then I am 100% sure it will find its way to AMCA.
no mk2 ones will not work on amca as design(of weapon pod) should be done in such a way that radar waves do not bounce back of the pod to the radar even after deflection of plane's body

Ha wahi matlab hai. That if Tejas gets it then AMCA too will get it. Its not a question of whether we have the tech. But the requirements of IAF. Irrespective of that DRDO/ HAL can do it through tgeir own initiative and offer it to IAF.

If the principles have been worked out and a weapons pod has been tested on F/A-18 (resulting in a drop in RCS), a pod should reduce RCS when used on other types, surely?
Weapon pods also increases the surface area and drag,with minimal profit in the RCS,f18 still a 4th gen and will ve hardly any advantage with those pods ...

Pods are for non stealth aircraft hence have 0 usage in 5th gen aircraft, so pods are out of question, and we’ll have stealth wingmans and GHATAK UCAVs for additional payload carrying and payload deployment.

When f 35 is planned to have 6 missile in near future , isn't it possible that we can develop it in 2030 , also no need to increase number of pylon , the middle two pylons can be made dual missile pylon with 3 d staggered arrangement .

They can change pylon for other armament

That still doesn't help in the reduction of the radar signature of the aircraft itself,but of course increments the life span of missiles....

pods will be useful for aircraft like tedbf which are designed for reduced rcs specially from the front, A pod will make tedbf much ore capable

A.concept in my mind , in future can there be any possibility where missile carries a light pullover type cover , very light in weight which they can drop, when being launched , those cover should be shaped like they touch wing surface , and hiding all radar signature , cheap in cost , manufactured in large number , not bulky , so if these cover last 4 5 flight would be enough .
Every fighter will have it's specific cover depending on it's wing surface , curvature .

once i asked nambiar sir(mirage pilot and head of rafale negotiation) on twitter about utility of weapon pods ,he said every bit of reduction in rcs is useful in actual combat ,the tweet was done a long time ago hence couldn't find it noe
