During the mission Blue on Blue either in Campaign or Free Flight you can get this achievement. Play the mission until you are told to abort the approach!

You will get a checkpoint which you can restart from should you not get the achievement before you run out of enemies. When heading towards the waypoint you will encounter a flight of four enemy planes.

Shoot down one of those planes. I recommend using a long range AA missile so you can do this rather quickly. Should you have to restart this will save you a bunch of time. As soon as one enemy is down there will be more spawning. In the meantime you can use the strategy detailed by in his video below.

Below you will find some helpful details:
- Play on easy. Enemy planes are less evasive and, therefore, less likely to try and break your DFM.
- Keep your finger on the breaks. Enemies trying to accelerate out of DFM are rare and you will have a fair amount of time to react. It is also easy to counter by just accelerating yourself.
- Really, keep your finger on those breaks. The easiest way to break DFM for enemies is to break and roll out of sight. So don't give them a chance to decelerate and overshoot them in a tight turn.
- Wait for enemies to be in plain sight before shooting down your current target. Else you might loose your DFM lock which will break the chain. This often happened to me when I downed an enemy while he was trying to escape at the edge of my vision field.
- Should you loose the lock out of nowhere, don't panic. This happens if an enemy initiates DFM. It will take a second to show you the reticle of your pursuer. As long as you reverse the DFM by making a counter move this will not break your chain! Simply continue when you are behind the enemy again,
- You do not need to improve DFM or rockets with skills. Of course they will up your odds. Skills can only be chosen in Free Flight!
- You should get this achievement with a plane left to spare. Should you not have it by then, restart from checkpoint.
