Wasn't anything enough. Most of it in the super duper realm simply did not do what it was advertised at all.

When you see how 'back to basics' this was? You'll laugh. A start up today (we did the math) with the plans and nothing else? If it costs 85 million a copy that would be asking a big price.

Once you accept a mach 3 cruise and a mach 6 sprint by rocket? It is child's play. One company even developed this absolutely insane micro-pellet solid rocket fuel that was so stupidly safe that it was all but inert until roused for anger.

There is a reason why China has a mach 5 drone out there - they bloody well know that rocket is a winner if you need a rapid response vehicle.

Add two mach 3 engines for efficient long range cruise in and out? You are 9/10ths done. There frankly is zero excuse for the US DoD estate not to have had a mach 6 air vehicle running as regular as an F-15. None.
