Greeks are now flying Rafales which come with canard delta configuration. Maneuverability would matter if Kizilelma is intercepted. Just because she is stealthy, doesn't mean the aircraft is invincible. She needs to defend herself from the manned aircraft our adversaries are operating. Maybe not today, but in the near future AI will improve. And the AI on Kizilelma will be able to engage such aircraft. Boeing's Loyal Wingman, won't be able to do the same. Having canards also does not compromise the aircraft's stealth. They're designed accordingly. Plus it's good deterrence. Imagine a stealthy drone that has the potential to outmaneuver an aircraft that costs more to operate and sustain. It's also worth mentioning that if Kizilelma gets shot down, we would lose nothing but a drone. If it's vice versa, the Greeks would lose a much more expensive machine as well as a human being (possibly). To sum up things, it's good stuff. I was actually so pleased to see the canards on the aircraft when it was first unveiled. And the way the design matured was even more pleasing. We have our own mini J-20I don't get that either. Why does KIZILELMA have to be super maneuverable? It's a low-visible aircraft that supposed to kill the adversary without being detected. Where does maneuverability fits into that picture if the UAV is never meant to go into visual-range. Are canards supposed to be for out-maneuvering missiles or something?
