What would this plane probably have been able to achieve, provided it had gotten built?
From what I can guesstimate so far, with close coupled canards + delta wing, there would be no shortage of lift in high AoA maneuvers. The Smenca is a light engine, but its power output is a little lacking compared to something like the F414 or EJ200. They did test the M88-2 up to 18,700 lbs though, so the engine could still do very well.
