They are testing a much more efficient SCRAMJET...

That alone is quite an accomplishment...

I'd like to see our enemies try and shoot down a mach 8+ scramjet powered cruise missile. Good luck with that. Not to mention the advantages it gives in the area of surveillance. Again, good luck trying to shoot down a 7,000mph spy plane.

Mach 3 I think.
The great feature on that plane actually was the high altitude capabilities.

The thing with the SR-71 was that it flew high enough and fast enough that no interceptors could catch it, and if you launched a SAM at it, the missile would run out of fuel before it reached it. The Blackbird would just fly so fast that missiles were only slightly faster and would take too long to reach it.

And it flew fast enough to cause the leading edges of the wings to generate so much atmospheric friction(at an altitude where the atmosphere is VERY thin) that they had to be reinforced carbon-carbon, the same composite the space shuttle tiles are made from, because the temperatures would far exceed the melting point of metal alloys. It actually even leaks when it's on the ground. It has so much clearance in everything, including the fuel lines, to account for thermal expansion(the airframe grows several inches at operation), that it leaks like mad in hanger. The inside of the windscreen at operation is hot enough to boil water....that's INSIDE the cockpit.
