A new satellite image has revealed a large blimp developed by the Chinese military at a remote base in northwestern China. The blimp is roughly 100 feet long and appears to have dedicated propulsion and navigation capabilities, which would allow it to loiter over an area for an extended period.
The discovery of the blimp after a Chinese spy balloon was shot down off the coast of South Carolina. The spy balloon was also a large blimp, and it is believed to have been part of China's airship program.
The Chinese airship program is still in its early stages, but it is clear that China is investing heavily in this technology. The new blimp is a significant advancement, and it suggests that China is serious about developing a large and capable airship fleet.
The purpose of the Chinese airship program is unclear, but it is possible that the blimps could be used for a variety of purposes, including surveillance, reconnaissance, and electronic warfare. The blimps could also be used to deliver cargo or personnel to remote areas.
