    Nah, and for the record if a hypersonic plane launches a missle, wouldn't it run right the hell over it? Unless, of course, it slowed way down to getting shot at speed.

    No, there is a get there speed and a fire speed. Unless it's the A-10, which couldn't outrun a GAO accountant.

    It would likely not launch missiles, but drop bombs.

    A super high tech plane with a low tech delivery system? Isn't that like putting a solid gold flush handle in an outhouse?

    Not at all.
    Missiles, being nothing more than bombs with engines, are stand-off weapons, used so that the platform that launches them may remain at a safe distance from the target.
    This particular platform is more than capable of approaching a target to the range necessary to drop the bombs(s) with impunity, as nothing in existence has any hope of intercepting it. Bombs, being simpler weapons than missiles, are more reliable, and so are less likely to fail - and so, are a better choice.
