Most of modern fighters cannot fly at supersonic speeds without burners (F22 can, due to it's "Sonic Cruise" feature, but even then it's not Mach 2) and 700m/s afterburner is perfectly doable, as evidenced by Wings.
I have a ship that reaches even 850m/s on burners (an interceptor) and it works fine.

Ok. I'm just used to the FS2 ships chugging along at a mere 70 clicks. Only time I've played a ship going even close to that fast was in the BtRL demo. :)

Don't worry. Primary weapons have semi-guided bullets.

That's just the autoaim.
Of course, it doesn't mean that it's not awesome, but bullets are not technically semi-guided. It's the gun barrel that moves (though you won't see it) and this system is also featured on some modern fighters.
