More information:

This aircraft is carrying extra fuel in drop tanks under the wings and conformal fuel tanks (CFTs) mounted on the fuselage above the wings. CFTs cannot be jettisoned in flight, unlike drop tanks, but on the other hand CFTs cause little drag and do not significantly affect the aircraft's performance in flight.
