Keep the fear alive, eh?

What happened to our "freedoms"?

It has no apparent motive power, so it's not mobile. The huge tail confirms that it's designed for tethered use. That and the huge ventral bulge points to surveillance as its prime use. Weather? I doubt it. You're not going to learn much about the weather by looking down and the tether would limit its altitude. Weather balloons work the troposphere and higher.
