I think it's just a cargo pod for carrying crew's personal stuff, some maintenance tools, spare parts etc.

I have been as well in believe that it is a transportation pod. Just like many US fighters has one, MXU-648.

Or then it would be interesting if it would be a electronic reconance/jammer pod like Mi-8 has on fuselag mounting.
