Is this an expansion of the original Temps des As, or a replacement (updated version)? Also, any info as to whether this will be one of the VV's with mounted counters?

So, aircraft & ships get top-down views, but lighter-than-air craft get side views...

AFAIK all recent VV have come with die cut counters.

[Edit] It's on the website http://www.vaevictismag.fr/en/content/7-program - definitely die cut.

Timing is perfect - it should hopefully be on the shelves when I go on holiday to France in September

This is a stand-alone game with a few updated rules (stalling for example) and new ones (landing, laughing torpedoes...).
Apart from the SE 5a counters which are indeed updated counters (revised stats), all the mounted counters are new, as well as the map (sea + coast).
