Mach FT Input

What do you think?
Could be used in automatic swing-wing, FT systems to simulate transonic wave drag, ramp intakes, translating inlet cone (SR-71 has one), etc

    @Dragoranos that sounds like an unnecessary feature tbh

    @rexzion thx, but it would still be nice if we had an input that is "not code"

    @ReinMcDeer TAS remains accurate regardless of altitude, Mach is pretty much just TAS

    IAS/343 will give you mach at sea level.
    There probably is a way to make it account for altitude but I haven't tried that
