Are they anything to do with the thermal_management/cooling_air for different systems inside??
Aditya G wrote:IIRC in fighter aircraft small intakes such as these feed air to the afterburners. APUs also require a separate intake. But the positioning of intakes in IJT seems odd for these appliactions.
Intakes for cooling are generally seen in AWACS/ELINT aircraft.

Paris Air Show: Super Hornet seeks exports with advanced capability

Paris Air Show
The big news from the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet camp is centred on two key areas: capability development and export potential. The latter is dominated by the request for information (RfI) from the Indian government for new fighter aircraft, with the Super Hornet among the list of contenders.
Boeing's Chris Chadwick told journalists in Paris that Boeing is working with the US government to agree terms to offer the Block II standard Super Hornet to India, whose requirement is understood to be for 126 aircraft with a decision expected by early 2009.
The Block II capability is coming online for the US Navy, with this standard, including the Advanced Crew Station, Multifunction Information Distribution System datalink, Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking targeting pod, advanced short-range AIM-9X air-to-air missiles and the Raytheon APG-73 Active Electronically Scanned Array radar. Block II is also offering network-centric operations and an improved precision engagement capability with the ability to receive, process and pass target data from other platforms as well as ground forces. The first two squadrons to be upgraded and flying with these additional capabilities will be operational later this year.
Block II Plus is a further enhancement revolving around the path to develop joint network-centric capabilities for the future.
