Several years ago you left here an interesting post. A direct quote:

"90s? If I had photo shop I'd get an X-15 nose, MiG Foxbat intakes literally three feet behind the cockpit, Lockheed Starfighter wings on F-18 LERX, a single vertical stab from a Tornado and for the rear? Make it like a Colonial MK 7 Viper. Two massive exhausts taken from an XB-70 side by side and a rocket nozzle above and between. So from the back you got a shortened triangle.

Then I'd be happy to blend all that in and have the two monster engines take it to mach 3 and the rocket to supply the needed sprint effort. Thats what I would do.

They used a throttleable rocket - The normal mach 3 cruise would be under jet propulsion and inflight refuelling via those special T birds.

Then once approaching they would zoom climb to altitude and max out their speed.

Unexpected altitude and speed changes are very bad for intercepts at extreme altitudes. "

Is what I quoted above related to the lineage(like a part of it)/generations, that you mentioned lately/recently, that lead to The Tooth and(or) directly to The Tooth itself, or is the aforementioned quote about something totally different and unrelated?
