This Is the 7,RS-4, scheduled If be delivered to the U. S. Navy it- May, when it will be christened thr Akron. It will be a monster of G.iOO.OOO cubic feet—far larger than til-- ill-fated R-101. or the U-100. EM- land's other superairship. Unlike I '.riose ships, built, for rommercia 1 uses, it is 'to be strictly a n?liii:re craft, and it will be the most powerful fighter that ever took the air. Its huge skeleton is rapidly taking form here, rising high overhead like the framework of f r **~ I prehistoric mammoth. When it is j completed it will have these nn- ' usual features: 1. The Akron will be nearly three times the she of the Los An- gelrs, the navy's present airship twice the size of the Graf Zeppelin and. although not much longer, far greater in power, speed ond range than Great Britain's H-10C rind R-101. 2. Eight powerful Maybach c-n- glnes, with a total of nearly -1500 horsepower, will enable the .ship to reach a maximum speed of "i? knots or 83 land miles an hour, faster than any other airship. Set inside the hull and combined with likable propellers, they will enable the ship to climb at the rote of 2CM feet n minute, while moving forward at n speed of 80 miles an hour—much faster than any airplane could make the same altitude.

Sixteen 50-caliber rapid-fire, high-pressure guns will be mounted at strategic points about the ship, according to Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Aeronautics David S. Ingalls. These guns, if operated ashore, would have a useful range of about 4500 yards, or nearly three miles; They can fire about 500 bullets a minute. 5. Carrying CO tons of fuel, the Akron will be able to cruise, without landing or refueling, at a speed of nearly 60 miles an hour, as far as 9200 nautical miles, or about II, 000 land miles— nearly half the distance around the earth, doubl? the range of the most modern surface scouting cruiser.
