Do you mean on tank per player, period? If so then no. FOW is designed around playing with reinforced companions. Armored forces would typically consist of 6-12 or more tanks, with infantry, artillery, etc. support. If you ignored the legal lists I suppose you could play with just one tank but it's likely to be very unsatisfying and over very quickly.

The main purpose of airplanes in FOW is as ground support for strafing and bombing ground targets. The air to air combat is very abstract die roll based.

I really like FOW for what it is. It's easy to play, quickly learn, and has enough color to satisfy me. If you are looking for a way to game one on one tank duels, it's not the way to go. I'm not as familiar with them as I am with FOW, but you might look at one of the skirmish level games like Bolt Action or Nuts! instead.

Hope that helps.
