The point of these tankers is to refuel all types of aircraft. You don't build a tanker that can only refuel fighter sized platforms. If you build a stealthy tanker, that can only use a probe and drogue system, you just drastically reduced your number of available tankers. And if they were to go in with stealthy bombers, which are going to need a top off before going in, you're in the same boat.
