The A-12 was designated as an attack aircraft and it wasn't made by Grumman it was made by Lockheed. It's part of the Blackbird family and was flown by the CIA before the SR-71 was accepted into the Air Force.

The A-12 flown by the CIA was never an attack aircraft. It was a single seat version of the SR-71 that was lighter, and a bit faster than the SR-71, but it had no attack capabilities. The A-12 had a shorter range, and was designed for direct overflight of the Soviet Union, where the SR-71 was designed for oblique photography.

The armed version is the YF-12, which carried AIM-47 missiles. There were several firings, all at Mach 2+.

A-12:
Range- 2500nm
Max Altitude- 95,000ft
Speed- Mach 3.35

SR-71:
Range- 3250nm
Max Altitude- 85,000ft
Speed- Mach 3.2
