This isn't too hard, so a little patience and a neat trick will make this really fun and easy!
This is also only obtainable in the Strategy game unfortunately, so your campaign victories won't count.
You'll want to start up a strategy game with these general settings:
Captured Islands Count: Few-Medium
Enemy Strength: Strong
Startup Resources: High
Islands Output Rate: High
Once you start the game, if you wish you should be able to use the same map for all 9 island capture achievements related to difficulty. I personally started out with Very Strong because I saw that first, then Strong, and lastly Deadly, all in the same Strategy game. Make frequent saves!
(I then went and killed the enemy carrier just for fun and it was HARD!! It went berserk when I finally torpedoed it after getting destroyed the first time.. I got behind it though and plasma'd it to death--Very satisfying!)

The main difference between the island difficulty is generally the amount of units and turrets on the island.
Strong: about 50% of the turrets and generally 2-3 Mantas and 2 Walrus watching each area of the island.
Very Strong: About 75% of the turrets and usually 4-5 Mantas and 3-4 Walrus are watching each of the different areas.
Deadly: 100% of the turrets and clouds of Mantas and Walrus are roaming the island.

In order to defeat the Strong island effectively, I found a very simple safe strategy to use, and wish I had found it earlier!
You will be equipping 4 Mantas with Shields or Ammo Box, Gatling or Laser or Plasma, Missiles or Rockets, and either no armor or MK 1.
Extra tips/ideas on Mantas equipment:
*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Once the strategy game starts, you need to do several things:
1. Figure out how many items for your Mantas you actually already have.
2. Go to production with cn_X while your carrier is selected and order the ones you need!
3. Look around at the enemy islands, press cn_RT while looking at one in the map view, and you'll see stats about the island. If it's unknown, you'll have to get closer to the island to find out it's defense level. Just look for one that's Strong, and try to park near there with step 4.
4. Send your carrier around in time warp to different islands until she runs out of fuel(preferably near your strong island) Doing this will put your carrier in permanent time warp allowing production to go MUCH faster.
5. Wait until all the items are produced, sending them to your carrier bit by bit so you don't overload your barque.
6. Make periodic saves so the enemy carrier doesn't suddenly blow you out of the water and you have to start over!
Good, you've got your Mantas equipped, you're at your Strong Island, now what?
It's a mix of medium and easy. You might well be able to do the entire Manta invasion from the map view, although you run the risk of losing Mantas. Strong Islands can be assaulted effectively from the map view though especially if you put the Mantas on Offensive by using the radial menu. Hold cn_LB and it's at about 4-5 o'clock. They will then attack and pretty much destroy everything, although if you manually select them and tell them to attack specific targets it'll go faster. Be warned--if a Manta runs out of rockets, they seem to be too stupid to switch to gun automatically, so do this manually! Or just send them back to the carrier with cn_B, and wait for them to rearm and refuel! And watch out for major AA nests, the Mantas aren't smart enough to avoid those.
Targets priority:
1. Radar Dish.
2. Production facilities(Manta hangers marked with H, Walrus garages marked with P)
3. All enemies.
4. All turrets.(watch out for sneaky turrets on the walls around the command center--they don't show up with the Manta unless really close and can take out Walrus very fast!)

With the Strong island, you won't have to take out many enemies before destroying the important structures. If you're doing it manually, just do a fast sweep for the objectives and important buildings, then mop up all the enemy units and turrets!
Once cleared, send in a Walrus with a hacking module equipped(hacking module looks like a Wi-Fi signal), and optionally slightly faster, use a Manta with a hook equipped to fly the Walrus straight to the command center.

You're now at the easy part! Bring your Walrus to the command center, and if you want to do all 50 Strong Islands now, SAVE YOUR GAME. Start the hack, and save again when there's one hack bar left. Now, let the hack complete, and if you haven't gotten it already:

Reload the save 9 more times and you get your achievement:
