The Babylon Rogues' zeppelin is an object that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is the main mode of transportation of the Babylon Rogues.

Description

Appearance

The Babylon Rogues' ship is designed like a massive metallic blimp. It possesses a metal-covered oval balloon that is red on the upper half and gray on the bottom. This balloon also has pointy metal plating on the front and yellow metal lines stretching along the balloon's front section's top, sides and bottom. On each side of the balloon is also a large gray, metal-covered propeller engine with yellow, double-layered propellers facing backwards. The rear of the balloon is also covered in gray metal, with a horizontal rudder on each side and the bottom. In addition, each of the rudders on the side have a red fin on the bottom and a red, metal-covered propeller engine on the top with yellow propellers facing backward.

The ship's gondola, which is attached to the balloon's bottom, is fairly large for a blimp. It is red on the upper half and gray on the bottom (although this portrayal has been depicted inconsistently)

Features and traits

Being an airship, the Babylon Rogues' airship is capable of flight. The zeppelin also carries a large stockpile of ordinance.[1]

History

The zeppelin was originally an outdated airship belonging to the Battle Bird Armada. Regardless, Babylon Rogues stole it when they fled as they did not have any Extreme Gear available.[2] Since then they have used it as their base and to travel far distances across Mobius in their treasure-hunting.[3][4]

The zeppelin was seen in close proximity to Cocoa Island pursuing the Armada's damaged Battle Fortress after it retreated from the island.[3] It was later used to bring the three thieves to the Great Forest when its sensors picked up the energy reading of a Sol Emerald.[4] On that trip, the zeppelin was used by the Rogues to drop bombs on Team Hooligan to stop their escape with the Emerald.[1]
