LOL! SNoop dogg. lol. I prefeer BIG BOSS and FOXHOUND. I have a idea for a X-47 styled attack bomber. Increase the size of it basically and fit it to use glide weapons. It orbits to the target area and then dips into the atmosphere. Then using whats called atmospheric skipping climbing back into a low orbit for return to base after dropping off its payload.

i wonder if Russia and the US are still fielding fractional orbital bombardment systems. seems allot faster and harder to intercept. i bet the war heads would be going hypersonic no need for explosives.


i would rather launch a multi million dollar missile and take out what needed to be killed and not even have to leave my office.

if i remember the X-47 goes up on a titan anyway.

It's the X-37 that is the orbital platform. It's launched using the Atlas V rocket.

He could also have been thinking of the htv-3x or something similar?

The hypersonic vehicles were launched on a Pegasus from a B-52. Blackswift wasn't ready for flight when it went black not long ago.
