What's the rated speed of the crewed dragon capsule? Do we have any data on the actual measurement for the demo mission?

I'd also appreciate any info on speed for Soyuz, other soviet manned, Apollo, mercury capsules, as well as any differences for dragon cargo or dragon with retro rocket landing.

Though at this time my focus is on crewed dragon speed.

Links are appreciated, specially for official sources.

    $\begingroup$ Note that soyuz don't splash down but land (at less than 24ft/s, its terminal velocity according to this page on Nasa website) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I was aware of the fact, but I don't know of a generic term to describe both splashdown and landing. Is there one? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ This (at least the dragon part) is a duplicate of space.stackexchange.com/q/44605/29286, but that one doesn't have an answer either... $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 8, 2020 at 23:59

  • $\begingroup$ Should I expect any difference between crewed and cargo in your experiences? $\endgroup$
