Originally developed by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Walrus is a massive blimp designed to deliver up to 1,000 tons of cargo to land-locked countries with little to no trade. The 140-foot-long airship would vertically lift off and be capable of landing on ground or sea. Due to it slow speed it'd be a sitting duck if deployed during wars, but commercially it'd be able to out perform sea vessels by traveling at a faster pace and for a cheaper price, which sounds good to us.
