I think if someone good with electronics could come up with a way for a pilot to "fire" an intermittent (limited time-length, focused) IR beam at a target plane's sensor, and a "hit" could trigger a momentary loss of throttle. Maybe a second hit could deploy a rolled-up streamer, replicating smoke/fire which would signify a "kill". I'd bet the Flitetest boys could come up with something!
