Are those ballast tanks or auxiliary fuel tanks?

I believe the tanks hold water for load testing. You can shift the load around inside the aircraft.

Yeah that has to be water for load testing. That piping isn't rated to convey fuel.

Please Augustas, what is going on in this photo of yours? - this is not normal and fuelling too many conspiracy theories
Whats the purpose of the tanks, pipes and cables please?

They are used to simulate passenger loads. The wiring is probably for instruments that measure such loads.

This is a prototype so it's normal.

Its funny seeing this photo. It's popular with "chemtrail" conspiracy theorists. "It shows proof of chemtrailing", it's funny stuff.
