      why prove it? In the KB itself they say that it is not request

      and what a beautiful picture and numbers - how much did it all cost, interesting? Not a dozen mansions built, probably

    IMHO, if she didn’t rise by at least 7-20 from 25 thousand, then this sharp nose should have a minimum of tungsten ... For a flight of 3000 she would then run off the air ...

        We smoke TTX Lockheed SR-71 (flight altitude, speed) before writing another imperishable.

      I thought the same thing about it, or kerosene cooling of the nose was sufficient.

    “By the beginning of the 1990s, he was not brought to a combat-ready state. As a result, it was closed. Probably, the developments have now been used in the ongoing development of a new hypersonic missile, but this is no longer the old X-90. The X-90 itself was supposed to replace the X-55 missiles, but since the project was closed, in the end, the X-55 and X-101 have come to replace the X-102, ”the military expert explained. I’m more worried that in those years, our "friends" from overseas could have thoroughly familiarized themselves with the technical documentation. Indeed, Yeltsin was on his knees in front of them to receive him and recognized overseas. You won’t do anything for glory.
