Looks like one of Kane`s inventions (from C&C).

also,i think it can carry alot of passengers,just likeold airships,they can use "airbags",basicaly giant bags of helium.that way,the entire thing wont be filled with helium.

why does it need guns?thats useless,they wouldnt dare attempt to putit over a warzone,one missle and that thing could go BOOM!i think that it would be a more economic way of transporting passengers.

Ok, I know this thing has a lot of awesome possible applications, and I`m sure it was extremely difficult to engineer, and it really is cool... It still looks like the Stay-Puft marshmallow man dropped a turd.

LoofahBoy, if it`s filled with helium, and we use it... won`t we all be squeaky?

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.

Why is Lockheed Martin Designing Airships that look like they just took 3 ovals in the 3D modeling program stuck em together and called it a ship?

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.

"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.

Hmm, it`s not the first one we have developed. I know it looks kind of dumb, but remember it is for rear support not the front lines.
And yes I see the joke ;-)

vv ""Odd Looking Airship"

..You mean a blimp?"

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.

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...

And my female psychology teacher would have me believe a thought like that in Freudian terms shows my sexual aggressiveness. Kinda insulting, even considering that a few other females in this thread came to that conclusion too.

vv [quote] "The military is developing this aircraft for heavy fast tranport in any terrian."[/quote]

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?

Lots more info and other links on this YouTube page (click more info), but it didn`t name or credit the music. I`d like to know what it is too, possible suggestion something off the soundtrack to "The Hunt for Red October"? Anyone?
