Concerns over civil unrest in urban areas and sensitivity over international outrage caused by their previous handling of such troubles led the Chinese Ministry of Information to examine less controversial methods for quelling an restless populace.
General Jin, of the PLA Secret Police force, noted the possible use of the airship as a means of urban pacification through propaganda, and soon afterward a small fleet of specially equipped airships would hover over troubled cities filling the sky with their overwhelming size and patriotic propaganda brodcasts. Some were inspired by the sight, many were terrified, most desisted whatever civil disobedience they were involved in.
When war came again General Jin did not forget his airships. He ordered several of them to be modified to his specifications and then sent to his headquarters. Many in the PLA heirarchy secretly questioned the validity of this plan, but to publicly question the leader of the Secret Police force was not a wise choice.
