This is actually the one for beating Fury in Mission 12 for the TOPGUN trophy, and it's a HARD one!

To make it a little easier, follow Fury in Hard Lock Mode, but don't try to lock her up on the first few runs. Just follow, and a second before the Hard Lock move prompt comes up, go Dead Stick (Let 'Em Go!), then when the move comes up, hit it as accurate as possible, in order to increase your lock circle.

Once it's almost full-screen sized, lock 'er up and win the trophy!

Beat Fury in Mission 12 - Dead Heat

This can be done on Hard for the Gold star and will make no difference.

Dead Sticking simply wasn't working for me, so I wrote down all of the manoeuvres and found the most common ones.

It seems to me that you can never actually win a manoeuvre unless you are already holding the stick/s in the correct direction before it appears. So the most common direction for the left stick is down cn_LSd, and for the right stick is left cn_RSl.

I'm sure that your first encounter with Fury is scripted to fail, the game does not give you enough time to lock on even if you win the manoeuvres, so just fail on purpose.

After this you'll be given a second chance.

One thing to bear in mind throughout this dogfight, is that if you lose, and Fury gets a lock on you, you must immediately crash into the ground, this will allow you to restart from the checkpoint instead of the mission start.

There will be some dialogue and Fury will ascend into the sky, follow her, notice that the game, again, does not allow you to engage her until the dialogue has finished.

Now this time simply hold down cn_LSd and cn_RSl, you will win most of the time, if it goes red then follow those directions to reduce Fury's lock on you. If Fury is hard locking you, again just hold down cn_LSd and cn_RSl, coincidentally holding cn_LSd will prevent Fury from locking on to you until she wins the largest circle.

If you win the manoeuvre do not attempt to lock on to Fury, you'll have to win at least 3 times, not necessarily in a row mind you, so just keep holding cn_LSd and cn_RSl, until you've got a good circle on Fury then go for the lock.

I hope this helps with this difficult achievement, it seems impossible at first, but this is the method that worked for me in the end.
