This achievement is probably easiest on a mission where there are plenty of Messerschmitt 110s to target. I will leave the choice of this to you, the player, as there are many missions where there are lots of 110s.

Also, if you are going to do the mission specifically for this achievement, choose the lowest difficulty setting, as the opposition will only do the most basic of evasive manoeuvres.

Line up behind your target 110, and wait for the Ace Kill reticule to fill up COMPLETELY. For the best chance of success, you will need all the Ace Kill time you can get! This is the reason why it is best to play the mission on the lowest difficulty: On higher difficulties you will not be able to stay behind your target long enough, and in the correct position, to fully fill the reticule.

Enter the Ace Kill mode, and shoot out one of the engines first. Then move across to hit the gunner, and then the other engine. Don't go for the gunner first, as it takes too long to hit an engine, and then aim on to the other engine on the other side of the plane.

Make sure that each shot counts. You will not have time to shoot at the same critical hit location twice. Also, do not shoot one engine, followed immediately by the other. This will trigger the Ace cutscene of the plane crashing, rendering the achievement unobtainable from this plane - you will need to find another.

This achievement is a lot easier than you would think from reading this guide. If you don't get it on your first try, you will most definitely get in on your second!

Good luck, and please feel free to ask any questions!
