A protective, flying fortress that is able to
circumnavigate the globe, without refuelling, bringing
cargo, passengers, troops, equipment, or supplies in
large quantities to any environment. Acting as a mobile
fort, barracks, hospital, maintenance centre, command
post, communications centre, or many other versions that
may be conceived. In fact, it encompasses anything that
will fit into a little over 8000 cubic meters of space.
It can be armed. It can bring war or relief, in any
environment, as all that is required to land it is a
space roughly the same size as the craft with enough
room to open its doors. Under fire, it can avoid
missiles and sustain multiple hits while retaining the
ability to continue its journey. When it lands, it can
remove badly damaged sections and return to being a
fully functional airship although it will loose a
proportion of its payload. On return to base, the
removed sections can be replaced within a matter of
hours, returning it to full operational capacity.
For military applications, the internal systems have
been designed with purpose so that if a fully loaded
craft touches down in a state of battle readiness it can
be unloaded in less than 10 minutes, or using special
design features, instantly.
