I love this idea !
Zeppelins were great, but balloons and dirigibles played important roles in both WW1 and WW2.
For example, during WW1 high altitude balloons were used for spotting purposes to better coordinate Artillery fire.
During WW2, Zeppelin-shaped balloons & dirigibles were anchored strategically in London, and also during the D-Day operations, to complicate fighter aircraft by blocking their ability to safely fly in battle zones.
Pretty neat stuff. Perhaps we could use Zeppelins in much the same way that Buoys are used, but in the air?
