There is no such airplane that I've heard of. Nothing certainly from the
Skunk works that would be tactical in nature. The hypersonic transport is
still a dream last I heard. The stealth bomber and fighter are both
sub-sonic. The F22 isn't even close to being as fast and won't be deployed
for at least four more years. Which airplanes are you talking about?
