    what is this hypersonic craft speed at match 5 and above ?

    can a human sustain such speed even if we achieve it ?
    I think realistic speed should be match 2 to 2.5.

    Space shuttle and Soyuz astronauts handle Mach 25+ on reentry.

    But do they maneuver the aircraft at such high speed? Will not the g force kill them instantly? I think that is achievable if you are moving in a straight line of sight.

    I think manoeuvring is not the objective here but the speed and altitude to escape the incoming missiles.

    Mig-25 can do Mach 3.2, but only for a short time and an engine change after landing.

    Mig-31 was reduced to Mach 2.83.

    SR-71 could do mach 3.2.

    Mach 5+ is the next frontier. The Americans have been flight testing one and pretty soon India will too.

    Re:

    Lets see what DRDO gets with HSTDV, have heard that they will test it with a miniaturised model, but any info when they will test it? Hmm Brahmos 2 will also be a hypersonic one, and what about Avatar?

    X-15 Wave rider is an example of supersonic unmanned aircraft that will be steeping stone for future hypersonic aircrafts.

    There is a difference between re-entry and maneuvering an aircraft at those speeds. The G forces go up exponentially with speed. So these aircraft's are mostly gonna be unmanned. Unless some new breakthrough comes in that allows g suits to take more G's than whats available today.

    Either way I think 6th gen planes are going to be too advanced for a pilot. A pilot may be more a liability that forces design compromises than an asset in next gen fighters.
