Not a single structure but four support legs , two in front , two at back , weight is quite well segregated compared to awacs , some structural reinforcement and it's good to go
Yes off course, I didn't mean that all weight will be made to bear on couple of structures. I was awed about the structural strength of body of the aeroplane. Come to think of it Ruskies made those An-225's to carry Buran. Yup they are strong.

Mpdms will be produced by a Pvt company
The project completion date is 24 months
It will have both single Luncher and multi luncher variants
I really hope we create a SPAAG (gun+missile) turret that can be fitted to different chassis rather than importing the BIHO or any other platform. We already have everything developed apart from the MANPAD and the rest just needs to be packaged properly.
