Alright... i didn't say that it was to be used in a XYZjet as a
propellant; i said that a french missile is using solid rocket fuel to
accelerate itself until it's fast enough to run in scramjet mode...
Basically, it fills the scramjet with solid fuel, and when the fuel is
all used up, claps open to let air get through, and scramjet mode
i don't know the name of the missile, but it must be from Matra, since
