Those weapon pod drones, sensors and so forth could have some storage points on that upper beam platform, but your suggestion of ventral mounting seems better to me. Of course, this begs the question: What do these drones look like? How large are they? Are they simply lashed down tight, clamped in special fittings or are they in protective containers (boxes, cylinders)? Are they automatically released via control or must someone get out there and unbolt the things?
I've attached a few images with some thoughts.
And the day begins...
