I was checking some information about the a340-600 and got this statement: "thickness/ chord ratios 15.25 per cent at root, 11.27 per cent at inner kink, 9.86 per cent at outer kink and 10.60 per cent at tip" I know where the inner kink is but what is the outer kink and where is it located?

The outer kink on A340-600 wing is located just outboard of the outboard engine, note trailing edge kink in planform drawing.
