The inlets are slanted upwards in order to alighn the intakes with the local airflow, as it has been disturbed by the wings and fuselage.
In the reply in the linked thread, you stated that the horiz. stab. gives a nose-down moment, which is not correct. The H-stab gives a nose-up moment; it's an inverted airfoil, meaning it's generating lift downwards, which would obviously cause the tail end to lower and the nose to raise.
Also, adding power will cause a nose-up moment as well. The whole reason the H-stab is in existence is because the center of lift is ahead of the CG, therefore, causing a nose-up moment. Adding power will increase the aircraft speed, therefore increasing the lift. As far as as I know, this will counteract the very slight nose-down moment created by the engines increasing their thrust.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
