SXT-244 by TheXHS SXT-244 by TheXHS
The SXT-244 is a space shuttle. This one have a scramjet engine for fuel efficiently climb into atmosphere and rocket engine for space flight. As first stage used solid rocket booster as the Space Shuttle.
It uses rocket boosters only at the initial stage, for takeoff and acceleration to Mach 3.
After that, scramjet was ignite and accelerate it to Mach 10-15, without leaving the atmosphere. Only after reaching this speed used liquid rocket engine, for leaving from atmosphere and for accelerate to orbital velocity.

not to burst your bubble.... (totally bursting your bubble, sorry) but the scramjet engines arent installed on planes, because there isnt a heat shield on the planet that can withstand the constant atmospheric fire the engine forces onto the plane....

I don't understan all your message (english isn't my native language)
But I know, that scramjet arent installed on planes, only becouse exist some problems with supersonic combustion, but when problem of supersonic combustion will solved, why not?
Now scramjet was tested on some vehicles - russian "Kholod" test vehicle, Boeing X-51, etc, and I think that after some years or tens of years scramjet engines find their application into aviation
Problem of high temperature was solved - termoresistance alloy, ablative thermal protection, evaporative liquid cooling system, and a promising way - electromagnetic influence on the boundary layer.
