This is alot more doable than I originally thought, some pointers that greatly helped me;

For the Vehicle battles;

Helicopters bring your anti tank sniper (PTRD/PTRS, Extra OP 49 S-rank, need soldier with the Anti tank rifle skill which quite a few soldiers will have) and start blasting the canopy, after a few minutes and 2-3 bars of health depletion the canopy will break revealing the commander, tranq him and complete the mission. For the regular soldiers I recommend a bandana + Fulton Recovery launcher.

Tanks/APC’s; Bandana+Fulton Recovery Launcher+ M47 rockerlauncher. Use the fulton launcher on all the soldiers (you can track how many left on the start screen when you have the analyser) It doesnt matter if you are spotted or not, the cleartime will be enough to let you gain the S-rank, for this strategy the Bandana isn’t optional. You can damage the tank/APC with your rocketlauncher till near death while fulton launcher the soldiers, just make sure you don’t hit any soldier, the commander will pop out the moment the last soldier is recovered and the tank health is 2-3 bars left tranq him and enjoy your next S-rank!

AI’s; Bandana + M47 will do the trick, its just speed.

For the Extra OPS Marksmanship challenges;

Get the M16 with Laser sight (Schematics in Extra OPS 46. Soldier with the Optical Technology skill as POW in Extra op 16 or 49), this wil grant you a red dot in the middle of your aiming sights, considerably making headshots easier. Headshots are far more important than a fast time, if it takes you an extra 3 seconds to aim perfectly for the head, take it

For the MAIN OPS;

Speed and no kills are key here, there are some missions (Locate the ID-card for example) with quite extensive interactive cutscenes at the end which require you to execute perfectly for the S-rank. Luckily you can practice them on the ‘Cutscene’section of the mission select (Where you select main ops, extra ops etc) The button sequence is always the same so just practice the routine.

This is by no means a complete guide for the achievement obviously but the rest of the missions are either very easy or doesn’t require a specific strategy to complete other than your normal routine, if you still have questions however I’m more than happy to answer them!
