Von Zeppelin gains government support for his work and the first Zeppelins are produced for military and commercial use.

They are secretly supplied with helium by the USA (who are extremely concerned about the British expansion), removing the risk of explosion.

The vehicles also employ the Faraday Principle to lighten the load allowing much larger payloads.
