Heres a challenge, find me something better than the X30 Torchbearer. The former SR-71A at Nasa's Ames-Dryden Flight Research Facility, which peaked
out at about mach3.2. Upgrades include, external burning of released hydrogen fuel ignited behind 19 scramjet nozzles. This allows the plane to use
its underbelly, that acts as a hypersonic exhaust. It can streak to Orbital speeds of mach 25. Now thats tactics.

how about ayaks?
(this project was not completely finished because of break-up of Soviet Union) it is very hard to fly in mesosphere - air is too rarified for
aircrafts and too solid for sattelites. Besides, air in mesosphere is highly ionised because of space particle beams. But if you can fly in
mesosphere, you are nearly invicible Russians created a revolutionary method - they created UNIVERSAL engine When "AYaKS" reaches hypersonic speed,
it uses heating energy. it has double shielding. Between two shieldings, in special system, water and ordinary cheap cerosine circulate. Energy of
surfacial heating is used to break up water into hydrogen and oxygen. Hydrogen is mixed with avia-cerosine to create fuel of enormous potential
energy. This fuel is injected into combustion chamber, remaining oxygen is used to fuel combustion processes. In this form, "AYaKS" can fly on 60
kilometers height, and even above BUT, on these heighs, rarified air is highly ionised because of space particle rays. That's why "AYaKS" has
air-taking chamber. It takes ionised air and redistributes it between MGD-generator (MGD means magnetogasodynamic) and MGD-thruster. Hypersonic air
stream is radically slowed by magnetic field, created by MGD-generator. Some of this energy is used for EDS (electro-moving force). Resulting energy
output - ABOVE 100 MEGAWATT. That is enough, to provide entire city with energy. And we can only guess how military modifications of this plane use
all this energy But that is not all! Slowed ionised stream is then goes to combustion chamber, where mixture of avia-cerosine, hydrogen and oxygen is
reacting. This results into enormous reactive plasma stream, which accelerates "AYaKS" to ultra-high speed. And that is not all! As I said,
"AYaKS" has sophisticated MGD-thruster, which uses some of board energy. If you activate this thruster, stream of ionised matter will enormously
boost reactive plasma stream, giving "AYaKS" 25-50 SONIC SPEEDS!!!
That is cosmic speed, which allows "AYaKS" to break all bonds of
planetary gravitation and go to space! And think what happen if "AYaKS" is equipped with the plasma anti-friction generator! Not passive one like on
MiG-MFI, but active one - large device, which uses lasers and high-frequency radiation to create plasmoids! That doubles "AYaKS" speed! In other
words, this machine is aerocosmic cruiser with plasma magnochemical engine, which moves faster then best anti-missile rockets and projectiles. This
machine despises air friction, inertia and speed limits! , made of very cheap, but extremely strong metal compounds! Civilization won't have defence
against it for centuries!
