That certainly seems a lighter and more elegant system than the "pogo stick" that the Berkuts use.

Do you have outer gear doors Lynn? I've heard it said that they were used to act as a sort of uplock to keep the gear in the wells under high-g maneuvers.

Yes there are outer doors that are hydraulic actuated by a solinoid valve with a bypass check valve built in so the door will open by gravity when the up pressure is released.
