Fully armed and operational!

Yeah! I have seen descriptions of a 4 tank + 8 AMRAAM external load out, but that might be a little far fetched nowadays! :XD: :XD:

Shouldn't the wings be bare?

Not necessarily, the F22 has used the external tanks for long distance flights (eg deployments to Hawaii) and has carried amraam on outer the wing pylons as well.

I know they do that. I meant more for the weapons load. The plane isn't supposed to carry any armament on its wings. They and the fuel tanks would make their stealth characteristics pointless.

The stealth characteristics are only needed on the early days of a conflict (or) when a viable air or surface threat exists. Once the threat from SAMs or other fighters is reduced, a greater load can be carried by utilising the wing pylons, at the expense of the now less critical stealth features.
