How about that SR-72?

I said it before and I'll say it again in response to a glib statement by a Lockheed Skunk Works Vice President, that "speed is the new stealth"
I say, "directed energy is the new AAA" Try and outrun that!
Just like the "all the eggs in one basket" aircraft carrier, certain platforms are worth almost any cost and effort to destroy in a conflict.
The technology is impressive, though, and I bet LM is farther along than we are being told.
