1. Blimps are slow.2. Blimps are awkward to move around, and with iddy biddy desk fans stearing it, they depend on the wind as to whether they can fly.3. Blimps are HUGE. They`re sooo much easier to spot on radar, and so much easier to intercept.
Rant finished, lets all enjoy the Chinook :)
And for those asking about the practical use of a blimp... they use far less fuel than jets and helicopters so carrying heavy equipment over long distances would be more efficient. The main drawback is maneuverability. It makes good sense, which is why it will never come to fruition!
I bet it`s going to be as big as the zeppelins.
