About this creation
While many consider zeppelin warfare obsolete, some high ranking members of SPECTRE still believe in their effectiveness, and thus a few airships were made using old surviving German schematics. The Fliegender Esel Airship is an ancient goliath capable of dropping thousands of bombs onto cities with ease—and little danger to itself. In the post apocalyptic world of Conflict II, the sight and sound if a Fliegender Esel Airship approaching is enough to strike fear into even the hardiest of veterans.







The Fliegender Esel Airship itself is a smaller offspring of the original Airships that ruled the skies during the ‘Great War’. While those were 700 foot monsters ducted out with ship cannons, mustard gas and paratroopers—the SPECTRE Fliegender Esel Airship is much smaller but far more advanced in accuracy, altitude, and defense. Gone are the ship guns—replaced with multiple AA guns and a thin layer of armor. Early German designs for proximity fuses have been incorporated into the zeppelin’s bombs; and now advanced charts have finally made their way into use—both of which increased accuracy by much as 60% . Oxygen supplies have also been incorporated allowing for much higher altitude limitations.



Statistics:
Length: 240 Meters
Top Altitude: 30,000
Top Speed: 100 mph
Armament: 7 large AA guns, Fighter Escorts
Bomb Payload: 30,000lbs
Flight Time: Medium
Armor: Light
Qualities: Resistant to destruction, Slow Speed, Extremely Large Bomb Payload, Medium Flight Time



A small fleet of Fliegender Esel Airship is going to be produced over the next few months—with a massive flagship zeppelin expected to be constructed as well. Production started on 12/30/11 and will end on 2/3/12 with five Fliegender Esel Airship being created.

(Second Production Run: Started 4/12/12 will end on 5/3/12) +3 Airships when completed--CANCELED Production on 4/26/12--All Parts Scrapped



4th Wall:
I’m very happy how this zeppelin turned out. I’ve tried building them in the past, but this by far is the best one. I included some things to make it more steampunk like—mainly the massive anchor with I think adds some nice character. I also added some Lego string an a rubber band in the front for no reason other than decoration—however the tail fins do have the ability to turn.

Quoting Nemesis º Way past awesome. How did you make the front? cause I want to build some zepplins now.
Thanks! The front and the back are built in generally the same way (Actually the middle is too). The main structural pieces are large thin tubes bent in a circle and 'fins' (The fin pieces attached with 1X1 horizontal clips) attached to them. You can really see the tubes and attachments in the second picture. –feel free to use the technique, since there can never be enough airships.

Thanks. I'll be able to defend them well enough against jets once my planes finish production. You could always out number the jets--making their advantages useless--like the German jets in WW2, the allies just had too many fighters for them to make a difference—though I’m sure bad commands from up top helped the Allies too.

This is epic! Great idea about using zeppelins, but I believe they will be pretty much devastated when attacked by jets. But still, they're awesome. You did a great job on it, nice SNOT build. And has cool detailing :) Keep up the great work!
