The requirement calls for a 90mph dash speed. Not blazing by any stretch, but sufficient to detour around most weather.

Even so, with the way laser point-defense systems are coming along, I doubt a blimp is really going to have much to fear for very long.
Or will they have more to fear?
Isn't the development of laser weapons something that might also work against the blimp, especially if the blimp is at 20,000 feet and the laser can shoot to 25,000 feet?
I wonder how many more blimps the air force has that are secret?
