Two Submarine Scouts Above KSFO.jpg
The Submarine Scout was a fairly small blimp, i.e. non-rigid airship, which were used for maritime patrol and convoy escort by the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) during World War I. The type first flew in 1915 and was in service throughout the rest of the war. The early versions had cars made from slightly modified aeroplane fuselages while the final version, Submarine Scout Zero, the one represented here, had a purpose built car.
