Night Raid, by Epic Megagames.  I came thisclose to registering it, but
never actually got aorund to sending out the money.  The pizza truck only
appeared after the 3rd wave if there were no enemy men on the ground, but
it was insanely cool when it did :)

Ditto for Night Raid.  I think it only had planes, though, no helicopters.
It also had cruise missiles where the game was immediately over if one hit
your cannon.  (but they were worth beaucoup points)
