At a cruising speed of Mach 4.5, it puts even the fastest Concorde to shame. The sonic boom created by this aircraft is surprisingly less than that of the Concorde.
The aircraft is equipped with two ram-jets under its delta wings, a pair of Turbo-jets under the front part of the fuselage and a rocket engine at the rear end of the fuselage.
The turbo-jets are used for propelling the aircraft during taxiing and take-off.
The passengers and the crew are placed in hammocks for improved comfort.
