Unless inertia compensation systems are imployed into hypersonic arial manuvers, there wont be any air to air combat going on simply due to the fact that the G-forces produced during dog fighting manuvers even at much lower speeds can knock out the pilot in a second, much less doing those kinds of manuvers at hypersonic speeds.

Plus there are all those long range fire and forget missiles that do not require any visiual contact of the target from miles away. And all those new remote drone planes that can carry the same armament.

So unless the move is to have arial combat with pilotless hypersonic RC airplanes, which is quite funny in of itself, I dont see any of this ever maturing to a level of practicality...that is unless they come up with inertia damping systems that null out high-G effects, then and only then hypersonic arial combat would be practical.




Cheers!!!!

Overscan had the correct answer on page one, It's a Boeing 1975 microfighter, Model 985-213.
