As an addition to the guide of Briana11 VR46

This one can only be done on the map shatter, as it's the only map of the crimson map pack to house a mantis. You don't need to destroy it just boarding it unlocks the achievement.

Since Briana11 VR46 deleted his/her guide;
The easiest way to board an enemy mantis is to carry an plasma pistol. Fire an overcharge shot at the mantis, preventing it from killing. Now you can safely board the mantis from behind while holding the "X" button, or the action button if you have an alternative button layout

Edit2: (Some small changes, thanks to the comments for pointing this out)
Also be ready to sprint to the mantis as players have the habit of jumping out from the mantis preventing you from boarding it.
