Realistic is fun isn't it?

To make this achievement easier you can make a Custom Difficulty which the game thinks is Realistic but falls somewhere between Simplistic to Realistic.

First you'll want to set up a Custom difficulty like this:

Take Off (i found this the hardest, the fat plane almost fell in the sea).
Join your flight leader.
Switch to rear gunner and prepare to defend.
When the bomb the carrier Objective appears, get to 2m from the ship and dive-bomb it.
Switch planes and fly towards the new objective.
Line up the plane and switch to rear gunner to defend.
Secondary Objective appears, land on Zuikaku.

Drop to 80% engine power within 1.5mile drop to 50%, then 30% at 750m. Deploy airbrakes.
You'll want to land at 80mph. Don't worry the plane stops really quickly, if it looks like your going to fall off the end then speed up and take-off again.

The more planes you save on the bombing run, the more you have to land on the carrier. You'll probably lose the plane you use to bomb the carrier though and maybe 1 to fighter planes.
