Soon we'll be seeing Helicarriers like in the Avengers - Pentagon wants them! 0

The future of the US Army looks bright! Wouldn't you like to see a helicarrier flying around? The DARPA is really considering this idea. They said that they are looking for suggestions for something like this.
“We want to find ways to make smaller aircraft more effective, and one promising idea is enabling existing large aircraft, with minimal modification, to become ‘aircraft carriers in the sky’,” said Dan Patt, DARPA program manager. “We envision innovative launch and recovery concepts for new UAS designs that would couple with recent advances in small payload design and collaborative technologies.”
Small Helicarriers have been build in the past by various people, therefore something like that can be done on a larger scale.
What do you guys say? Would you like to see something like that in the next few years? State your opinion below.
