The blog China Military Report is a treasure trove of bizzaro weapons ideas, like something straight out of the nuclear-hand-grenade 1950s. The Navy Times‘ new blog The Scoop Deck highlighted CMR‘s hilarious, giant, submarine aircraft carrier. But the Chinese blog also features a proposed design for a huge, flying airstrip (illustrated) that is basically a carbon copy of the “heli-carrier” belonging to Marvel Comics’ SHIELD intel agency.

CMR‘s name for this fantasy carrier? “China’s space mothership.” Priceless.

[...] The 59-foot-tall Gundam in Tokyo is now finished, surely developed as a countermeasure against the China’s recent development of flying aircraft carriers such as that reportedly seen on google maps in a lake near Shanghai (below) and their building of the flying airstrip best described as a ripoff of the Giant Helicarrier from SHIELD (second below).

    Sky Captain riffed off of the SHIELD Heli-Carrier idea…which first saw print in 1964, if memory serves correctly.

    Finding it difficult to believe that any nation’s government would seriously take this concept and run with it…though I can see where engineers would love to try to make it real.

    to a new location and new hires. Oftentimes, they will offer Caribbean trip specials in advance so you can
    plan your trip months ahead of time. Havana vacations give visitors
    an opportunity to mingle with artists, Hollywood stars and other highly ranked
    people and western life too.
