Submitted
 
Lockheed Martin's Skunk Works has already begun development on the high altitude SR-72, which will fly at Mach 6—twice the speed of the SR-71—and will be capable of carrying weapons. Unlike the Blackbird, the SR-72 is an armed platform that will be capable of attacking from the edge of space. (sploid.gizmodo.com) More...

Real pics or it don't exist. It does share alot of shape similarities with the so-called "Aurora" spook jet though.

Really? Grey? The SR-71's black color made it look so awesome! It's like they chopped the wings off a hornet :)

The link referenced in the squawk post is to Gizmodo, which is certainly not a bad tech news consolidator but its summary article actually is based on the exclusive source in Aviation Week and provides a direct link to that source article.
