Hybrid Airship by s0lar1x Hybrid Airship by s0lar1x
A sort of hybrid prototype airship I designed for my comic... Something like that. Originally I tried to create ship design for a certain ship I had in mind, but it didn't quite work out, and I ended up creating this instead.

So yeah, it's sort of a hybrid, basically a carrier with lots of other stuff added into it, like that small factory and repair station, as well large array of weapons.

The only two flying aircraft carriers ever built, USS Akron and USS Macon, didn't need ramps or catapults to launch their biplane fighters.  They just dropped them like bombs.  Recovery was less simple, involving a hook above the fighter's upper wing and a trapeze-like arrangement on a boom.  Both ships were built by the Zeppelin Corporation, and both were wrecked in thunderstorms.  It was their vulnerability to bad weather, not the Hindenburg disaster, that really killed the big airships.

Of course, if you've got contragravity tech and nuclear power, the weather would be less of a threat.

Nice detailed drawing, though the design reminds me of a miniature for the game Full Thrust. Let's see if I can find the link..

I know you probably already colored it but with your permission, may I color it in so it looks like a true one instead of one made of wood.

Hmm... Sure, why not. Do you need the uncoloured version or can you work with just this image?
