A HyperSoar hypersonic Global Range Recce/Strike Aircraft the size of a B-52 could take off from the US and deliver its payload to any point on the globe - from an altitude and at a speed that would challenge current defensive measures - and return to the US without the need for refueling or forward bases on foreign soil. Equipment and personnel could also be transported.




S-300/400 and its variants can handle this

No, it would be gone before they catch it.

i dont know the exact speed of sound, but its around 700mph, give or take. 700*19=13300
so mach 19 would be (very very rouch estimate) around half the speed that the space shuttle orbits at.

Regarding an S-300/400 surface to air missile bringing down an operational Hypersoar....

The S-300 made by NPO Almaz / MKB Fakel (Russian) has a max speed of 4700 miles per hour and an operating ceiling of approximately 95,000 feet. The Hypersoar on the other hand theoretically would have a speed of approximately 6500 miles per hour and an operating height of 130,000 feet.

The only way the S-300 would bring down an operating Hypersoar would be to catch it ascending or descending to or from it's operating height and speed.
