For tactical systems operating within the atmosphere, ramjet propulsion offers significant advantages over conventional rocket propulsion systems i.e., those which carry both fuel and oxidizer. The principal advantages -- increased range or greater payload at fixed range -- result from the intrinsic high specific impulse Isp associated with ramjets, which only need to carry fuel the oxidizer being obtained from the atmosphere for their propulsion.
