    It has capability to simulate around
    Mach 6 to Mach 12, higher than world's largest one in China with Mach 9.:indian:

    Utilization:

    India's Upcoming Spaceplane Avatar RLV
    (Space shuttle like thing)


    Indian HSTDV, Hypersonic Glide Vehicle (Indian counterpart of American X-47B or Chinese Wu-14), a hypersonic delivery system (possiblly nuclear) capable for travelling @ Mach 12 -14.

    It just stimulates the mechanical & physical properties, what happens when you go with 10-12 times speed of sound in air.

    So, now utilization has been started.

    Meet the HSTDV, India's own hypersonic warhead delivery system.
