Mq on K8s environment with Tomcat

We are going to evaluate the possibility of upgrading our Pega 7.3 platform, currently hosted on an on premise infrastructure based on WebSphere 8.5, to version Pega 8.x hosted on K8s environment with tomcat application server. We would like to leverage standard Pega 8.x docker image provided by Pega System.

Our main concern regards the integration (both for writing and reading) with external systems using IBM MQ.  According to different articles we found on the community (MQ question related to WAS to Tomcat migration | Collaboration Center ( it seems that this should be possible.

What I would like to know is how this could be applied on a K8s environment. I suppose we should in some way customize standard Pega image in order to load the IBM client jars in the tomcat lib.
