Realistic is fun isn't it?

To make this achievement easier you can make a Custom Difficulty which the game thinks is Realistic but falls somewhere between Simplistic to Realistic.

First you'll want to set up a Custom difficulty like this:

Walkthrough:
Take off
You'll now have 3 waves of bombers and 4 ships to protect, you must kill as many as possible. If you've already done this level you'll know that attacking bombers from slightly below means they can't shoot you, but you start above them.
Wave 1 is 15 dive-bombers. You start above so kill one from above, then circle around quickly, once behind them you can sweep the line and get loads of kills. Don't worry about a few getting through your ships will flak them to death, if 6+ get through you might lose a ship though.
NB: Make sure you have full cannon for Wave 2.
Wave 2 is 12 Torpedo bombers (and the hardest). you start level and they are much closer to your ships so less time to kill them, start aiming towards the rear and swing around behind them. Once your cannons are depleted, swap planes rather than try and gun them down.
Wave 3 is 15 dive-bombers and 12 torpedo bombers. Lots to kill, you start above the torpedo bombers and level with the dive-bombers, go for the dive-bombers as they are weaker.
Achievement pops straight away.

**The achievement popped for me after Wave 2. However i had already played once and got my 3 kills on Wave 1 and 3, but only 2 on Wave 2. So i need confirmation for wether it's all 3 waves or just the first two.
