Aside from the standard mecha bonus, aircraft by themselves haven't historically been too effective at causing significant damage to armored units.

Why not? You can do with animation what would be too costly to do in real life (TV, movie).
Your best bets might be works like Patlabor or SDF Macross (even though the latter are ridiculously advanced). There's other older works out there like VOTOMs, but their avoidance of the standard mecha bonus varies to a great degree.
