WHATIS.EXE states that the image contains a machine language program and nothing else, perhaps Salamander compiled the BASIC program before releasing the game? The same could also be true of Fishy Business (also included in the zip).
Interesting I converted many of my cassette-based games to disk sometime back in the 80's. This mostly involved removing loaders and stuff and extracting the "real" program. I don't recall the details of every game converted anymore, but I definitively have a BASIC version of Wings of War lying around as a result of this exercise. I guess this means that they used a loader of some sort. Looking forward to having a closer look at that CAS file sometime soon
