Looks like a certain picture over a certain state.

hrmm....

Take the xb70 and then think about the lessons learned in that model you posted in the windtunnel for testing a few posts up.

Pay especially close attention to what youd do to a valkrie if you hybrided the two. Perhaps a longer nose. Some awsome reshaped wingtips and rear end. Cool new engines. Maybe look at a different tail configutation.

Such a great thread, even with the long winded derailment attempts.

Or, even better, take a bunch of different configurations for aircraft, to test how the sonic boom reacts to the configuration, and put them in a wind tunnel.

It's a 65% scale model of an aircraft that has never flown. Its o only purpose was to test the noise levels from its sonic boom in the tunnel.

You asked: "Could this be used as a kinetic weapon for something on earth, if it was stationary? Could you "shoot" it at a building and use it like a man made meteor or something?"

Sure, anytime you can get an impactor going about 2.7 km/sec or faster, it will pretty much atomize itself and a mass of the target at least as big (usually bigger).

A rail gun is one way to do it; a "Rod from God" is another way. In either case, the basic problem is that if you're trying to hit a target that's stationary on the ground you're faced with the problem of having to move the impactor through the atmosphere at hypervelocity speeds right down where the atmosphere is the thickest.

With a rocket launched KKV, the impactor is only moving at its fastest speed when it is in space. From the time it launches until it gets out of the atmosphere, the KKV is underneath a streamlined launch shroud that protects it from aerodynamic forces and aerothermodynamic heating. Once it's outside the atmosphere, it doesn't much matter what it's shaped like.

If you try to move that fast down on the deck, the impactor has to be a slender, pointy dart shape in order to avoid losing all its energy to aerodynamic drag. The outer surface also has to be coated with a thermal protection material of some sort to avoid boiling away whatever the impactor is made of. For example, the Sprint interceptor missile which was part of the old Sentinel Anti Missile system back in 1972 reached Mach 10 at relatively low altitudes. It's skin temperature got up to 6200 F, which was actually hotter than the flame temperature of the rocket motor.

Nothing can survive at those temperatures for very long. Naval applications of railguns envision a flyout time of about 15 to 20 seconds to surface targets. A Rod from God avoids that problem by boosting the impactor outside of the atmosphere (either into an orbit or onto a ballistic trajectory) for most of its lifetime. That allows an approach to the surface target on a relatively steep trajectory, thereby spending the minimum amount of time down at low altitudes.

Regardless of how you achieve the speed, any kinetic impactor that moves at hypervelocities down near the Earth's surface will be surrounded by a high temperature plasma sheath. It's pretty hard to see and/or communicate through a plasma sheath, so autonomous tracking and navigation to the target may not be possible if, for example, you wanted to use the IR portion of the spectrum.

Isn't this all getting back to this high-speed aircraft design?

With respect to the KKV, as I understood the concept, it doesn't attain a very high velocity itself, but velocity differential between the KKV and its target is where the kinetic energy comes from. Thats why it has the omin directional thruster config.
It is essentially jockeying for position as the target sattellite approaches. And it doesnt take much to damage a sattelite, they are pretty flimsy and even if the KKV does not destroy it it would still bw made useless.

Aw shucks, I'm blushing.

I'm happy to comment whenever I have some actual knowledge about what's being discussed.

And just for some fun around here on what
SECRET aircraft is possible TODAY, I say look
FIRST at what home builders are doing and
if THESE home-builder can do this, IMAGINE
what's being done in the Black Budget world:


RC B2 Bomber (large size): goto 0:57 for takeofff

RC SR-71 Black Scale Model (Large Size):

RC F16 Fighter (Large Size) goto 2:00 to see it take off:

Have you ever heard of Metallica?


...aaaahhhhhh !!!!! yes I have heard of them
but I'm more of a "One Direction", "Justin Beiber"
and "My Plastic Romance" music fan. I think Metallica
is something my grandpa is REALLY into though

OMG , One Direction and The Bieb,thats just terrible, but if thats what your into so be it.

Metallica have been dinosaurs since the black album.
Back in the day('84) i had a first release, on cassette,of what was to become Garage Days
.....
.....

Tell you what those 50-60 year old punks have put on some of the best shows I've been to in all of my life,
and I got a busted lip tonight in the pit, and I'm 53,
Old Men Rule

I'm Just Joshin' Ya!

I'm old enough to have sat in the Oval Office as a real
young-and-green foreign tech-wiz still in high-school
during a confidential technical briefing with
Ronald Reagan, GHWB1 and Caspar Weinberger
so that should tell you how old I am....!!!

I FULLY WELL KNOW who Metallica, Def Leppard,
AC-DC, GNR, Warrant, KISS, Billy Idol and Scorpions are....!!!!!!
