I wonder if adding dimples could improve the aerodynamics of this thing too

EDIT: I wonder what the outer shell is made out of? I find it hard to believe ceramics will withstand the pressure of speed and fracture prematurely.
I would imagine a ceramic / titanium blend. Last I checked they make this blend by placing the two materials together and then detonating explosives on either side actually forcing them to merge together.

I love these names. Everytime I think they can't top themselves, something new comes around.

Oh it definitely would. Trust me, if you were on the receiving end of one of those, you'd immediately go home and become a family man.

I don't know much about this but isn't it a LEO missile.. If so you cannot really call it a mach 20 missile.. as there is no air to measure the speed of sound then your cannot calculate the velocity over it.. If they are talking about relative ground speed then its all good.
