Every aircraft in the game is fitted with a standard cannon, use it by pressing the 'A' button. It can be used to destroy any target but it has low damage and shooting large buildings or ships is very ineffective. It is however highly effective against other aircraft and when using the target button 'Y' to lock on you will be given a small diamond shape to show you where to lead your target and kill the enemy aircraft.

You could get 50 kills in the main campaign on your hard playthrough if you decide to single out the odd few each mission. Any cannon kills you get will still count if you die and restart checkpoint. However if you finish the campaign and still do not have this achievement or if you want to get it on easy with no fuss follow this guide below.

Load up the mission 'A Murder Of Generals' on easy difficulty, using any aircraft will do but I found the PAC-FA, Raptor F-22 and the Blackguard to be the most efficient. Play through as normal until you are tasked with destroying the 'Convention Centre' - DO NOT DESTROY IT - Instead target the weak Mig's that will continuously and indefinitely spawn from the north. Change to air-air missiles to lock on to each Mig but do not press 'B', instead lead the target at around 1.8-2.1 km and hold the 'A' button to activate your cannon, it never overheats so just blast away. After 50 kills the achievement will unlock in game.
