I found a fairly easy way to do this stage (and get the achievement), even on hard difficulty. Start by making a squad of hunters (the flying things) , and then sending all four of your heroes to the nearest node, and take it for yourself. Geist and some units will spawn, kill them and then make a save. The node will suffer a few wave of attacks and then you'll be left alone. The save is important because sometimes your heroes will die if you have them positioned poorly. All four need to be able to see all the paths to the node so they can attack what shows up. Keep an eye on the node but after an attack or two you'll be ok. Send your hunter squad to the building in the middle of the map. At the top of that building is a circularish ceiling with a pillar of energy or light or something coming out of it. That top level is the enemy spawn, right around the pillar of whatever. Move the hunters up there.

Until you take another node, the enemy will hardly bother you, I actually was not attacked at all. So we are going to take advantage of that. Make a refinery on your new node and level it to 3. Once that is done make 5 more squads of hunters. Now max out your unit limit on plain old Enforcers. Put your enforcers into 3 person teams for easier moving (hold A when you have 3 squads near each other and then click the left mouse button) and go to your hunter squad. Use an indirect order (highlight the icon for an enforcer squad, hold shift, then click with the left mouse button and drag the mouse, an arrow will appear) to move all your enforcer squads to the top of the building I mentioned earlier. Under that roof, around the pillar, is the enemy spawn. Move your troops in under the roof, around the pillar. Yes, that's right, we are going to camp the AI. Move Eona up with the infantry to spawn camp and make a squad out of the three powered armor heroes.

Now we have free reign over the map. The AI will still make chump units at nodes outside the main spawn, but they are easy to kill. All the heavy stuff (like Matriarchs) will spawn right on top of your infantry, where it will get promptly decimated. I didn't lose any infantry squads during the entire stage, but you can if you position them wrong. It might be a good idea to save right before you take a second node, as the AI will spawn three matriarchs that will mess your shit up.

So, now we take a node. I went clockwise around the map taking each node, but first I made the 6 squads of hunters into two teams and destroyed the tower on each of the 5 nodes you need to capture. Once you've done that, the AI cannot build units anywhere but the spawn you've camped, and it won't attempt to retake the nodes until you've taken them, but by then they won't have any units to do so.

With that out of the way, you are free to take all the nodes as you please. Do note that Geist will spawn each time you take one of the 5 nodes you need to advance the story (they are objectives with the flashing dots) so be prepared to fight him (keep a hunter squad around). Remember that only Geary can activate those 5 nodes, so you have to move him to each one (hence why the other 2 heroes are with him, they help kill Geist).

If you are moving clockwise, the third objective node will be the airfield, netting you this achievement. Take the other two to end the stage and get your easy/normal or hard achievement. Unfortunately I have no way to capture video on my PC but if the 360 version is the same I'll make a video on that of this strategy.
