This achievement is rather easy, but an explanation can always help.

At the beginning of Mission 7: Thunderun, you will take control of a turret on top of the tank. After some story elements, you will control the tank itself, and just proceed forward. After a minute or so, one of your teammates, will mention enemies tanks "on your 3" (right hand side), and they will become marked by orange diamonds. Make sure that you zoom in using RB, and begin to take aim. Now just go back and forth (LT then RT), and take shots at the enemy tanks, remember to lead your shots as they take some time to travel farther distances. Just eliminate the 6 tanks, and the achievement is yours. If you die, reload the checkpoint, and it will still work.
