Will we see this on future fighter designs? A few proposals have been shown with canards. Could we see an improvement in Levcons type technology using pressurized air to control fore-body vortex control? Or is maneuverability finally irrelevant in the 6th generation?

I would put money that there will be neither "levcons" or canards on the US 6th gen fighter.

Is dislike of canards institutionalized in the United States Air Force? Why would Boeing display an F/A-XX concept for the Navy with canards?
