First , the USA SAC sent most of the SR71s to the recycle bin (museums and the like). Except for 2(?) that I believe they sold to NASA .
This is the rebirth of the SR71 as the SR72 . The next gen and no way resembles the previous SR71

She's faster than the 71 but still air breather only. So likely not hypersonic.
She's bigger than the 71 and based on an older, shelved project. No relation to Kingfish or YF-23. My best guess is an upgraded XB-70 based on the third prototype they never finished.
