Eurofighter has released a series of photographs of the Typhoon fighter aircraft in its heaviest configuration to date as it continues its evolution into a multi-role strike aircraft.
EADS’s IPA3 is pictured carrying four Raytheon Paveway II 450kg (1,000lb) laser-guided bombs, an air-to-air missile fit of four Raytheon AIM-120 AMRAAMs and two BGT IRIS-Ts and three external fuel tanks at a maximum take-off weight of almost 24t.
Eurofighter is now making rapid progress towards achieving an air-to-ground capability on the Typhoon – a capability whose absence was believed to be behind the type’s rejection from Singapore’s fighter competition last year.

heres a thought. Would saudi let the Iranians look at the tech with a view to making a counter measure system to the designator?

External weapons are a no no for stealth.
I have to say thats something the F-22 cant do. Even if it had external mounts it would be losing some major Stealth points. External weapons are a no no for stealth.
I have heard of something simmilar for external stores on the F-22
