Mwari has an Interchangeable Mission Systems Bay (IMSB), located in the underbelly of the aircraft, which provides sensors and payload options that can be integrated and swapped in less than two hours with a plug-and-play mission system. This comprehensive, open-architecture and flexible system enable fast and inexpensive integration of new pods, avionics, cargo, mission-specific equipment, weapons and sensors.

The aircraft has a flying altitude of up to 31,000 ft, a maximum cruising speed of 460 km/h, an operating range of about 550 nautical miles, or a flight endurance of 6.5 hours.
