This is something that I hope you guys (and ladies) can help me with. Back when I was younger, I wrecked one of my dad's favorite games. His birthday is coming up and I'd really like to surprise him with another copy. Sadly, however, I can't remember the name of it and I don't dare ask him without rising suspicions that something is up.

The only thing that I really remember about it was that there was a board and on top of that there was a elevated transparent plastic board held up at each corner of the regular board by four legs. I think there were tanks that were on the bottom board but I definately remember that there were helicopters (UH-1 "Hueys") if I remember right that went to the "airborne" plastic board and they were tan colored.

Anyone got any ideas?

It doesn't have tanks in it, but from your description, Chopper Strike (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/2446) might be the game you are looking for.

Chopper Strike has helicopters in tan colors that 'fly' on a clear plastic board above the land board. While I don't remember any tanks, it does have jeeps for the land vehicles.

(Edit) Whoops, got beat to it, should have refreshed my screen. Anyhow, that's probably the game.

My copy is in what seems to be never-before-played shape if you happen to have anything that you'd like to trade me for it.
