    Typical Indian TV media like pathetic tabloidism.:lol:

    That's why only put link and not content. Well, can somebody confirm news with a credible source?
    In My Opinion (after reading about Scramjet), it must be a hypersonic cruise missile or a hypersonic glide vehicle like Wu-14 and coming back after hitting target is just garbage.

    "Hypersonic technology demonstrator", most possibly the tentative name for Brahmos 2.

    It has potential to serve as an HGV (Hypersonic Glide Vehicles) operated by US, Russia and PRC.

    Well former president Lt APJ Abdul Kalam had once mentioned something like this. He had conceptualized the idea based on mythical Sudarshan Chakra and dreamt of something like this which could be reused. May be the tabloid is making a story out of this thought and the very same reason why Sir Kalam's pic has been used. :)

    But technically speaking its not something which can't be done, but it would be expensive as an weapon system.

    Swapna Missile? In other words, a Dream Missile?

    What does it do? Flies like a dream?

    Coming back after killing the target, supposed to be used again.

    Then that would not be called a missile, it would be called a UCAV.

    I mean by definition, missile is an object that is supposed to kamikaze itself into the target, rendering the target as well as the missile destroyed. Swapna would not be in accordance with this fundamental definition, thus technically it would not be a missile.

    But it's according to news site not me.

    I think it's mere an HGV and reusability is a hoax.
