Based on the successful Zeppelin NT N07-100 semi-rigid airship, the PZ-6A patrol airship was designed to fulfill the Commonwealth Navy's need for a persistent aerial surveillance platform. Fitted with a powerful optronics package, an advanced surveillance radar and sensitive ELINT equipment, the Argus airship can operate for more than 36 hours continously.
Currently, there are four Airship Patrol Squadrons (ZP) in service with Commonwealth Naval Aviation, each with eight airships.
