    Sorry, not aware of any such developments. Knowing DRDO, it will probably emerge sometime next decade.

    From your very same wiki page, please read your entire link, a scramjet is a ramjet that can take super-sonic air-in flows EXACTLY what I said, that is not the type of ramjet you have on Brahmos.

    what you have on Brahmos or Yakhont a liquid fueled is called a integrated ramjet rocket, look go to page marked 38 (or 12 if you want to count) and see all LFIRR based ramjets, none have reached above 4.5 M even in experiments. All are below 3.5M except US navy GSSCM which remained experimental and was quarter of the weight of Brahmos.

    Is it possible, who knows maybe someone can make a design that can slow airflow for this engine, but as of now I don't think it can go to 5 Mach.

    Even normal ramjets don't have moving parts, scramjets are just a variant of ramjets. The sub-sonic comustion ramjets that can take speeds upto 5 mach are generally solid fueled like mica

    Actually LRCM should not be a big technical challenge as Brahmos engine was supposed to be used in same.

    Big Thumbs up. Earlier it was announced that it will happen in 2014 end. Now it is happening after 3 years. Anyway, this is a deadly punch and a great combo and a giant leap in sand off capability.
