I think that should cover everything.  Take what is said inside the turn as you will.

And it only took a day for my rebels to fail at improving the internal structure of the base

Better than what happened to some of the others.

Because apparently placing some furniture and dusting up an ancient base collapses an entire building due to stupidity.
And it destroyed the Sniper Rifle!

Maybe they were using really big feather dusters.

Writes 'Abandoned Rebel Base in the Amazon Jungle from years past.'
Thinks I won't make the base in a condition that really needs repairs.

Actually, zepelin balloons are fairly rigid. Can soak up enemy fire without getting damaged to much.

Quote
A series of structural vulnerability tests were done by the UK Defence Evaluation and Research Agency DERA on a Skyship 600, an earlier airship built by the Munk team to a similar pressure-stabilized design. Several hundred high-velocity bullets were fired through the hull, and even two hours later the vehicle would have been able to return to base. The airship is virtually impervious to automatic rifle and mortar fire: ordnance passes through the envelope without causing critical helium loss. In all instances of light armament fire evaluated under both test and live conditions, the vehicle was able to complete its mission and return to base. The internal hull pressure is maintained at only 1–2% above surrounding air pressure, the vehicle is highly tolerant to physical damage or to attack by small-arms fire or missiles
That's a commercial vehicle.
Well sure,but do you think that a 25 kg bomb won't hurt it? Or any incendiary weapon? Incendiary bullets...
It's not unlikely that the bomb fails to detonate. Even if it detonates, most of the craft is heavily compartimentalized (Think hundreds, maybe more). The Comparement that's hit will most likely be destroyed. The adjoining compartements might start to leak, but small holes will seal themselves (rubber boats can do it, so my blimp can do it too). Damage will not spread far.

Also, neither the construction materials nor the flotation gas are flammable. The gas is helium, so it will actively counteract the fire. Carbon nanoweavers don't melt easily, so it's unlikely that the fire will do damage. It might even fail to penetrate. (It stretches and bounces very well.)

Thirdly, have you ever tried bombing a moving, stealthy and very agile target while speeding by at 4 times the speed and under heavy AA fire.


What's the charge meter for?
And also, which of the 3 ship's is flight ready? There's a difference between a supply ship and the massive airship.

*shrugs*  The player never specified, so I say, your choice.

*insert aliens conspiracy guy*

I am thinking in-universe, it might have two of those, one saying "dragons", the other saying "humans".

How is it stealthy if it's shooting at me?

I'm not trying to say they aren't useful. I'm saying they aren't the Über creations you seem to be presenting them as, with the ability to act as an aircraft carrier, battleship, and bomber at the same time without downsides.

EDIT: On an almost-similar note, what I came to talk about. For level of tech, what may I assume? Near future? Because I'm wanting monofilament optic fiber cables or something to be able to act as nerve replacements and routers for interfacing with computers. What with the lack of effective thumbs.

They are heavily understaffed.  He is saying what they could be if fully staffed.  Also, I'm not limiting him to having to use helium and hydrogen as sources used for flight.

I'll be located in/above the Mines of Paris. Draconic nations, I do sincerely hope you will not use this information to kill my faction in horrible ways and fashions.
