Thats not possible.
Inclusion of any such provisions will require major redesign.

Massive reduction in radar signature. Since 3/4 of the reflective surfaces of missiles are hidden.
would make it a real 5th gen minus or "rafale+" aircraft in true sense and that too without the high maintenance of 5 th gen fighter ,if it could supercruise it can even give f35 a good fight

It'll definitely be better than a F-35 in a strictly air to air kinematic scenario. It has better design vis-a-vis area ruling, and higher thrust while being lighter.

Rafale's pretty much left in dust.

with supercruise and sensors assuming to be equal to gripen e or rafale f4 it could wreck havoc on 5 th gen ones easily

Sensors are highly subjective in nature, and every country repurposes their use tactically much different from every other country. So comparing them to each other is very apples to oranges comparison.

What is however quite objective is things like, Empty Weight, Thrust, Wing Area, Nominal Load carriage etc.. And these are looking pretty fine on this aircraft.

Radar 😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱 uttam got a brother , it's module are damn expensive also f 35 has more than 1200 trm
AMCA will have 1500+ in GaN based AESA Radar, actually F-35’s GaAs Radar has 1200 T/R Modules, a dude from Lockheed Martin on a blog said that GaN based Radars are already being operationally used on F-35 and has 2053 T/R Modules.

That's too much , really chonky at nose .

I think this is part of plan to upgrade avionics they were planning for f 35 , DAS and Eots are also planned for upgrade
