Breaking News! U.S. Army LEMV Program wants 21-day endurance, 20K Altitude Hybrid LTA for AFPAK:

The first known way (that at least establishment caveman-to-spaceman mythology historians accept) for men to fly was by Lighter-Than-Air (LTA) aircraft. Today's Lockheed-Martin "Skunk Works" P-791 LTA hybrid heavy lifter with an air-cushion landing system (ACLS) to firmly connect the airship to the ground in suction mode is a good contrast for the LTA balloon attack envisioned during the 1800s by Benjamin Franklin and Napoleon.

LTA hot air ballons probably were used by even primitive ancient peoples. The U.S. Army used observation balloons in the Civil War saving us from disaster to ward off Confederate counter-attacks that incompetent General McClellan who dithered about invited. Most know about WW1 observation balloons but not that the Japanese used observation balloons to direct artillery fire to compel the British to surrender at Singapore in WW2. High technology M113 Gavins should have a small balloon unreel with a fiber-optic link to a videocamera to have a "see over the next hill" capability instead of launching model airplanes (fixed-wing UAVs) that will crash and be lost. Hyperblimps that are see-thru look like a better option to fly ahead for closer investigations. Leonardo Da Vinci may have also discovered heated air LTA and probably flew the first gliders by men in the post-ancient era judging from his mysterious art work showing scenes only perceptable from the air and his strange health problems we suspect received from glider crashes. Da Vinci destroyed most of his books pertaining to military inventions so one has to wonder what he was actually able to do.

LTA is making a big comeback since America's military needs to move anywhere across the globe and deliver tracked AFVs like M113 Gavin to then dominate a fight. Agile see-thru blimps that can remain undetected are also needed to provide 24/7/365 continuous overhead presence to smother insurgencies in sub-national conflicts--particularly securing border fences and denying land mine layers access to roads:

LTA is desperately needed to fix America's Navy surface ship vulnerability against air, missile and submarine attacks:

Lockheed-Martin's P-971 looks like an ideal candidate for such missions and should be of a see-thru material so as to be invisible to the naked eye. Even USAF officers are in favor of LTA:
