Yeah no that wouldnt work out. I cant read russian and dont know enough about their development history to include more than what you would find on a wiki anyway.

So here is a new one. Started to include more ramjet powered missiles. Solid rocket missiles wont be included. Still far from complete.

Bummer.

The diagram you have is great.

The Iwannabelieve cracks me up every time while still documenting everything really well.

HACM and HCCW.

The latter I could see being HCSW misspelled. AvWeek suggests it might be Hypersonic Counter Cruise Weapon. That seems off to me.

However, HACM could be Hypersonic Advanced Cruise Missile. Or at least that's what comes to mind immediately.

AvWeek's article:

HCCW - Hypersonic Counter-Cruise Weapon ?
HACM - Hypersonic Aerial Counter Missile ?

We know that DARPA is looking into intercepting hypersonic weaponry. This might be it.

Juicy? A six year gap and we are suddenly able to deploy scramjet missiles within a year or two. That says something, IMO.

3D printing helps as its quicker to redesign a part that doesnt work.Materials that you put through it is rapidly getting bigger with Carbon Fibre blends and the ability to fuse exotic metal dust now available and cheaper.
The Biggest ability of 3D printing is its ability to make the part lighter by thinning the walls and using exotic pattern infills (like honeycomb) that keeps the strength but makes the part lighter..Plus now multiple extruders means that you can now add different materials into the same model.

The HSSTP HYTIP slide? That's the public rendering released by Lockheed of the SR-72.

Just thought it was interesting they chose to include that.

It makes sense to. When they finally fly it they're aiming for hypersonic speeds.

It's interesting how some items that get scrubbed from various parts of the internet tell more about something than if they just let it stay up and get caught up in misinformation, especially when it's intended to be science fiction.

It's always fun when they give away something over an overzealousness of security.
