While the Raptor going mach 3 would be an excellent achievement for a fighter, that is if it could sustain that speed on burner. But it wouldn't be
fuel efficient and would emmit a much greater infrared signature though I'm sure mach 2 gives off enough of one. And I believe the wind speed at
mach 3 would be detrimental to the stealth material on the body of the plane, someone correct me if I am wrong.
