    Capable of speeds of 10 000km/h...

    Woomera hosts secret hypervelocity missile tests

    A couple of mushroom clouds seen over Woomera also...for those who don't know Maralinga was used to test British Nuclear weapons (after the US froze Australia and Britain out of the Nuclear programme)
    All facilities built to make Australia's first nuclear weapons STILL exist and are being used for other purposes...but proves we could make one PDQ (pretty damn quick)

    Good question...perhaps both defensive and offensive?
    The hyper aircraft we are making can actually change course at these high speeds, so both applications are relevant.
