Is it a good idea to pick a losing design? The article proves how inferior it was compared to the J-20
No,
That is BS.
The design above is more maneuverable than J-20, Just that PLAAF’s demands were different

It also said it had to be longer and have a smaller radar. Also weren't members saying that canards weren't stealthy?

No idea but that's what members said here
O khan sahab -_^,

It all comes down to design and how every inch on xyz affects RCS.

Not common knowledge, those who are engineers, And related specifically to aerodynamics, Know it.

It has to do with air resistance as well as Physics of Electromagnetic spectrum

if snow owl lost the bid with j 20, what was fc31 for?
Not related,
FC-31 was supposed to be an international competitor to F-35
