The Mini Blimps was a really fun design challenge. The designers wanted a small patrol blimp that could police the city. When you raised the alarm the blimps would fly over and rain down fire from above so that you couldn't just hide on roof tops. I wanted to make them very maneuverable so I added two rotating fans in the front so that they could turn instantly at any angle. I also wanted to hint at the Nazi's use of jet engines by giving the blimp a suedo jet engine. It has a large air intake in the front and a series of fans to create that intense thrust but it's large size would prevent it from moving to fast. In the end the blimps were scaled back to something more traditional but they kept the same tail design and a similar feel.
