How does this game First Battle of Britain (ST 255) compared to Zeppelin ?

Maps seem related...



Is gameplay as well ?
Is First Battle of Britain a redux of Zepplin ?

Thanks

Similar in appearance but actually quite different games. (And a good question to ask since S&T seems to have recently entered a "redux" phase of reprinting older games and/or packing counter-sheets with stuff for older games.)

I never got "hooked" on Zeppelin while "First Battle of Britain (1BB)" is one of my favorites!

In "1BB" the Zeppelins play a rather minor role in the game with the emphasis on the long-range bombers that the Germans introduced late in the war and used for "terror-bombing" campaigns.

The strategies for both sides are very subtle and the mix of units nicely-balanced.
