I hope that they at least have a layer of kevlar around the airship so no small arms fire can take out a billion dollar Blimp.

Looks like the Germans got the same ideal. The German company Cargo Lifter. Is making one that can lift 160 tons.The CargoLifter CL 160 will be able to move payloads that are too large even for the military's biggest heavy-cargo transport plane, the C5
To house this gigantic blimp, CargoLifter has designed one of the largest, self-supporting hangars in the world. The enormous hangar, under construction in Brand, Germany, will be 1,181.10 feet (360 meters) long, 688.97 feet (210 meters) wide, 351.04 feet (107 meters) high and will cover 889.57 acres. To understand the enormity of this hangar, imagine a structure that could completely enclose the Louisiana Superdome, an arena that holds 125 million cubic feet (about 3.53 million cubic meters). The CargoLifter hangar, which will hold 194 million cubic feet (5.5 million cubic meters), should be finished by the end of the year.
They already started to build this hangar and have a pic in the link of it huge
Hopefully this blimp works out better then the Germans last one
