Hypersonic missile

A hypersonic missile is a rocket-propelled weapon that can travel faster than Mach 5 speed (1701.45 m/s), i.e. 5 times faster than the speed of sound (340 m/s). Some hypersonic missiles, typically powered by Supersonic Combustion Ramjets or Scramjet propulsion systems, are capable of reaching Mach 10 speed (3,400 m/s) and can travel up to 12,000 Km on board an ICBM.
