"In its secondary role of ground attack, JF-90 will carry a variety of underwing stores including stand-off attack weapons and antiradiation missiles. The specified combatradius is 500km (300 n.m.) with up to one hour of loiter possible at this range. For escort missions a radius of 1,000km (600 n.m.) is required."
"Finally, the Germans see a need for a true multi-mission airframe with changes from air-to-air into air-to-ground roles simply a matter of weapons fit. Specialised versions of
the aircraft to meet both missions will not be acceptable."
