    The military? Seriously? What is it, a Stealth Blimp? Cause it`s damn near invisible to the naked eye. And I mean, even if advanced radar technology managed to somehow pick it up, it must be pretty much impervious to ground-to-air weaponry. Right?

    Davy, its not a stealth blimp, its a camouflaged blimp. Just look here on IAB as an example... the link posted was of a blimp, but everyone sees a giant as*hole... which means in Iraq this thing would be perfectly camouflaged.

    Now let me explain that joke to the new ebaumers...

    Death, if you`re going to get all pedantic on us, it`s really a zeppelin. Named by the Germans, since they invented the damn thing. Let`s stick to the generic "Airship" for now.

    And Lion, I love you.

    "Blimps aren`t exactly efficient."

    Are you kidding me? They`re EXTREMELY efficient; they require no fuel to stay aloft. They only require it to move around. Compared to any other form of air travel, it`s the most efficient form around.

    If I recall correctly, it`s not actually a blimp because it`s not lighter than air. It`s almost lighter than air, but it does rely on forward momentum and lift in order to fly. I believe it`s designed as a heavy transport.

    Technically, this thing is a hybrid airship. It uses a combination of internal helium gas and the lifting properties of the hull to generate lift; the hull itself generates lift like a wing. Hence the runway take off.

    In other words, it`s the world`s most aerodynamic ass. Kind of like me.
