Complete mission 5, THE FINAL MISSION! Without losing a single life. This can be done in single player or co-op.

This is it, this is the ULTIMATE TEST!! This level alone makes the rest of the game look like a walk in the park. Practice is obviously the key here, plus grabbing the vehicles when you can, concentrating and staying focused!

Another probably not amazingly helpful tip would be to clear the level in very small sections while following the video carefully so then you know what to expect. Even then the amount of fire you come under in this level is insane, but it can be done... eventually!

Personally i found most of the mission pretty easy, at the start you can choose from the Jet (Slug Flyer) or the Helicopter (Slug Copter). I chose the Flyer because using the cannon is a lot easier for me as it only fires forward and diagonally forward which is handy for when you need to move back and fire. The Copter fires backwards when you move backwards making it tough to move back and shoot forward at the same time.

As for the first mini boss (Allen O'Neil) who will be stood out of the side of the enemy blue plane, dont be shy with your cannon/grenades. Allen is the last 'form' of the plane, to start with it will shoot at you with homing missiles and bouncing explosives. Also a standard soldier will pop out trying to hit you with slow rockets, but so long as you are hitting the plane with tons of fire it will go down eventually regardless of wether Allen is attacking or not.

Once past the galaga style part of the level you will enter the main spaceship, this is the hardest part in my opinion! Follow the video for guidance and take your time with the first section, dont forget to free Hyakutaro Ichimonji as he has a pretty useful fireball attack that can help against the enemies! If you didn't free him in Mission 4 than this achievement will still unlock upon freeing him in this Mission:

Further on in this same section, you will need Hyak' to free the President before walking through the door. Follow the video from 1.55 and you will see Hyak' firing at the roof, resulting in the President being freed and this achievement popping if you didn't free the President in Mission 2:

The rest of the mission comes down to practice and consistency, its seriously tough. But with enough practice and knowledge of the enemies you can do it!

Heres the video that may help a bit!

Best of luck!

I've also made my own set of videos too which will hopefully help players out even more!
