Parseval Airships

From Graces Guide

The name Parseval, from August von Parseval, was used between 1909 and 1919 to denote 22 airships built by the Luft-Fahrzeug-Gesellschaft (LFG) following his design. Later several airships were built following the Parseval-Naatz design.

The Parsevals were non-rigid or semi-rigid airships, with little or no stiffening structure inside the fabric envelope. By contrast, the Zeppelins had a rigid internal framework made of duralumin. Both types relied on hydrogen gas to provide lift.
