The X-10 was designed by North AmericanAviation to test aerodynamics and guidance systems for the Navaho missile,a supersonic cruise missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead morethan 5,000 miles. The final design would have used two ramjets to powerthe missile up to a speed of Mach 3.25. The X-10 itself was powered bya pair of afterburning J-40 turbojets that gave it a top speed of Mach2.1, which it reached on February 29th, 1956.
