That's interesting - "fast jet" often equates to "low aspect ratio" --> shallow lift-curve slope and lots of pitching moment (bigger wing chord). PSS airframes similar to that will often require large stabiliser angles just to balance the pitching moment, unless the section is reflexed and/or the tip (if swept) has significant washout.
