    the missile would fall out of the sky in the ramjet stage if the gas chamber is a large carburetor. can't believe we are still arguing about something so basic.

    Tell me why would it fall out of the sky?
    There are things called rocket boosters that thrusts the missile to the required velocity for the jet engine to start. Most all jet engine powered missiles require them.

    Another point is if you close the SCRAM jet air intake with a valve the combustion chamber can be shared with the Ram jet since there is no special mechanism within the combustion chamber itself.

    rocket boosters only get the missile to ramjet speed, not scramjet speed. otherwise there wouldn't be a ramjet on the missile.

    This should help the point you are making.

    I believe I have already answered towards your argument within my previous post.

    it wasn't clear what your point was since you were still going on about rocket boosters. so what is your point?

    I see you have completely ignored the latter half.

    you said
    why can't the fuel injector be turned off to the ramjet combustion chamber when the speed is high enough for the scramjet to function?
