  1. re: SR 72

    “Hypersonic is the new stealth,” Leland told Reuters. “Your adversaries cannot hide or move their critical assets. They will be found. That becomes a game-changer.”

    I’m not sure It will be a game changer.

    First, it will still be vulnerable to missiles. It will be visible far quicker from ground based and space based radar systems, as it needs to fly at higher altitudes. Its hyper speed will reduce its ability to perform rapid attitude changes – all these increase its vulnerability.

    More likely is that Lockheed see it as a money attractor for research, which will have other benefits. As for the armed forces, the top brass has always liked BIG weapons systems, at the expense of those which actually work on the field. This has several advantage- for procurement departments both in the military and industry, as well congress.
