With its three engines, AS2, will be able to achieve a top speed of Mach 1.5, or 1,836 kilometers per hour, but the speed in flight is going to be Mach 1.4, while the indicative range is estimated at 7,650 kilometers.
Cabin which is slightly greater than nine metersis divided into two separate units.
