What if the US used the Walrus airship project and made it into a flying aircraft carrier. just the tech we have now we can put the planes on top and have two unmaned blimps on each side with defense weapons. the carrier blimp would be 300 yard long and can carry strykers and Rangers with air support, this would give the US a 30 min to 1hr rapid deployment and with multiple airships troops can get their every 30 min. right! with improved satalites we can watch weather and avoid weather problems. Giving the US a true air suprmency with a flying fleet that has patriot missiles and radar and stealth F 35 or F22s and apaches and A 10s not to mention Rangers who now can truly lead the way. Also a blimp of this proportion would be a couple of millions and defense for it wouldn't increase prices that much and the new abilities we would have. also it could run on nucleur energey or a air compressed engine cause its in the sky.
