>>44602007 That's a vague question which could have a number of answers depending on what you meant.
>power source/engine >form of propulsion, which in most cases will require the above >food supplies >fuel supplies (if the engine needs fuel) >ammo supplies etc. etc.
Food could be dealt with by having it be unmanned. Ammo and potential mechanical failures (for example, failure of one of the engines) could be dealt with by having some sort of onboard manufactorum that can create parts using basic materials the ship gathers or keeps onboard. Power source...there are a lot of options when it comes to power sources. Could have a nuclear reactor, or if your setting is in the far future, a compact fusion reactor.
I think at this point though I'm just describing a Von Neumann probe.
>>44602080 the helicarrier from Avengers would strip the land below it if it ever got below a certain altitude. That implies that they completely fuck up migratory birds, air currents, and air traffic. Geez, thanks UN.
>>44602080 Fuck the landing strip, the fighter jets, gun emplacements, all that crap.
Just build a giant platform with 50 engines strapped to the bottom of it. Use 4 of them for propulsion and manoeuvring, and then when you find the enemy, get above them at low altitude, flick a switch and turn on the other 46.
>>44602063 A solar-powered zeppelin sounds like the most efficient vehicle for this task. It could even be unmanned like >>44602063 mentioned, but f you need a crew then you should be able to fit a few people in there with some food and water rations.
