Yep, civil. The projections are not hardpoints - not really sure what they are!

No, side intakes, feeding the one engine.

Is the silhouette moving toward us?
Yes, although technically speaking the silhouette isn't moving at all

Not the Altaire mate.

Diamond D-jet?

Edit. I guess not. They would be wing-root intakes.

Morning.

They are flap track housings. You can see them on such small jets as the Diamond D.
