Hypersonic Support For Special Forces Troops | Forces TV

Armed forces of the future could be using rapid response aircraft with engines capable of propelling them to hypersonic speeds.
Hypersonic is defined as anything above Mach 5.
F-35s fly at Mach 1.7, while the SR-17 Blackbird, the fastest air-breathing manned aircraft, reached speeds in excess of Mach 3.5.

The aircraft could directly use, or use a variant of, the Synergetic Air-Breathing Rocket Engine (SABRE).
