That design perplexes me? What the are large bulges at the wing roots? Conformal fuel tanks?

The P.92 almost looks like a design that started out with wing root mounted engines, much like the Fouga Magister?

The aft podded engines remind me of the Spanish HA-500 proposal.

Or to the Dornier jet trainer proposal from 1967
(from AviationWeek 11/67 )
