if you still feeling generous Zaph is Tyler Rogoway right?


This would be a little puzzling considering that when I was last at Edwards AFB, just last March, the whole 'East Base' complex, where heavy bombers, the B-2 and the Airborne Laser were housed, is being converted for a massive 'new program' that will be coming out of the black fairly soon. Even the B-52s and B-1s that called East Base home for decades have now been moved to the main Edwards ramp in preparation for this new program, which is almost without any doubt the LRS-B.

Yes and no. There is a project already at Edwards, and the LRS-B isn't coming out as soon as people hope, but fairly soon.

which one will work best on ISIS?

I'm going to make a WAG here and guess that it's operating out of Edwards North Field.

Edit: that's North Base.

One is from what I hear. At least when its home.

It crosses from horizon to horizon between 90 and 120 seconds on average. Even if you detect it, what exactly are you going to do about it in that time frame? And that's before you add in the altitude that it is at.


If that's 100,000 feet or higher then that makes this very very fast indeed... like, Mach 15 or so?

Not that fast, but it completely destroys all previous speed records.

Noted. Although I have to wonder where the 'unofficial' speed record is at right now...

The X-51 holds it for air breathing craft. Something close to 20 IIRC.

Ah, looking into it a bit that'd be the one known as HTV2 that only managed it for nine minutes so was considered a failure? Let me slightly rephrase then... I wonder where the unofficial speed record is at with at least one guy sat inside clenching his butt...

Not as fast.


Purely air breathing or hybrid?

How about both?

Ooh, are we talking SABRE engine-type hybrid? Because if so definitely that one. Not that the other isn't interesting too, of course.

Or that.

Ok, both are currently slower than the X-51.

Hmm so more slow than the X-51 but beyond the SR-71 speed record of mach 3.2, it can be in the mach 3.5/4 range ?

"Green Flame fuel" is being manufactured by the Aerospace companies themselves. Interesting developments around Plant 42 and Edwards AFB.

High Mach Flights resemble Missile Cones in Flights. Example: Missile Cone heats up to 3000F. How to cool it? Heat up space behind missile cone to 2000F. From what I'm being told similar scenario is being used on "these" airframes. Ask Zaph.

I was also informed that High Mach Flights are "like flying through Jello."

See, that's why I was reluctant to go with the obvious 'both'. Ask an easy question, get an easy answer is the way this game seems to go.

With Zaph, direct questions are always the way to go. While he may not be able to answer them directly, we all usually learn something from his responses.

Yes, but sometimes, depending on my mood, even direct questions can lead to fun answers. At least from my point of view.
