Also known as HVX.  This was announced in July, a collaboration between Reaction Engines, Rolls Royce, the RAF and government departments to produce a hypersonic research aircraft.

It's quite reminiscent of the HS APD 1019E2, covered in the BSP Hypersonics and Mustard volumes.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Interesting configuration for a hyperspeed vehicle. All ramjet design I am aware of had rather short intake ducts, resulting in more or less free-standing engine compartments. Such a long duct is new to me.
