Sky Target (スカイターゲット) is a Sega Model 2A CRX arcade game developed by Sega AM1. Ports of the game were made for the Sega Saturn and in Japan, Windows PCs.

History

Despite its name it is considered part of the After Burner franchise, having the player pilot various jet planes across levels. The original Model 2 cabinet was only released in Japan.

Sky Target is the first in the series to be portrayed in full 3D. It is a much slower game than its predecessors, perhaps more comparable to Star Fox 64 for the Nintendo 64 or Panzer Dragoon as a result.
