Have you POV model(s) for the animation?
(that is needed so that the object lightning can be made suitable
for the Airstrike atmosphere :))

Airstrike got also POV models for those so that you can
render your own animations (e.g. change the colormaps
and shape a bit).

I remember a really small 'tanks' game on Atari ST.
There was a big random mountain in the middle of
the screen, birds on the sky (like ones in "Luola"[1])
and tanks could move on each side of the mountain
and shoot each other over the mountain.

Btw. What's the original inspiration for the game?
The idea is a bit similar to "Scorched Earth"[2] which
I think is the best known implementation of this type
of game.

My own version (Mortar) of this type of a game is at my home page:
