Thanks a lot, it's just to make an idea. Wow, the Hindenburg could lift 112 tons! That's a lot, more than I thought. But the power is more than I thought, too.
What I need
is an airship with Hindenburg dimensions, but for less payload. If payload is less, power would be a little less. Not for lift, there is no power need for this, helium (or hidrogen in the Hindenburg) does it, but for propulsion.

BTW: Who will be the first to go mach 1 in an airship?
Imagine a 200 m long monster flying at +1200 km/h. That would be an awesome sight! Maybe with some big rockets...
