Lockheed Martin SR-72

Description (Taken from Wikipedia)

The Lockheed Martin SR-72 is an American hypersonic UAV concept intended for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance proposed privately in 2013 by Lockheed Martin as a successor to the retired Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. The company expected an SR-72 test vehicle could fly by 2023.

The SR-72 is to be similar in size to the SR-71 at over 100 ft (30 m) long and have the same range, with entry into service by 2030. The SR-72 follows the US Air Force's hypersonic road map for developing a hypersonic strike weapon by 2020, and a penetrating ISR aircraft by 2030.

Controls:

• Throttle up for the Turbine engines
• VTOL up to activate the Ramjet ( Throttle down the Turbine engines first before activating the Ramjets )
• Trim is so much needed for this aircraft, adjust the trim as much as possible for stable flight
• AG1 to activate the Drogue Parachute

    Yeah they actually never even drafted it. They just released a side view along with an essay in 2013. In reality a manned hypersonic strategic reconnaissance aircraft has been in service since at least 1998. By that time the Airforce and CIA have had a policy for no new single tail designs.
