    Gunship AC-130 available on all new maps

    Alborz Mountains
    Death Valley
    Bandar Desert
    Armored Shield

    to get control of the gunship in conquest your team will have to hold the flag that has the gunship icon on it or you will automatically have an AC-130 in Rush as an attacker. From the respawn screen you will be able to spawn in the Gunship. There are only 2 spots, the main gunner can cycle through weapons with . If you're familiar with how an AC-130 works you can use larger rounds to damage ground vehicles and smaller rounds to fire faster and try to take out choppers or infantry. You have to be in the main gunner seat in order for the trophy to pop. Unfortunately the gunship flies in a preset route so you will have to wait to line up your kill.

    The Gunship is available on all Armoured Kill DLC maps:
    Alborz Mountains (Flag C)
    Death Valley (Flag C)
    Bandar Desert (Flag E)
    Armored Shield (Flag C)

    You can control the Gunship in Rush or Conquest. In Rush, you must be an attacker, and in Conquest you must control the flag that has the gunship icon near it.

    You are able to spawn directly into the gunship, if it has available spots in it, and it allows for 2 people, but it is much easier being the main gunner. The gunship will fly around on its own, so don't worry about steering.

    Spawning in the gunship is the hardest part, once inside, just switch to the largest shell, and aim at buildings, vehicles or choke points in the map. You can go to smaller shell if you have direct sight at infantry. Once you get the kill, you see "Player 1 [Gunship] Player 2" in the top corner, and the achievement will unlock.

    geobandit212You can also earn this by using the engineer class, dropping anti-tank mines around a particular well travelled area. Suicide and re-spawn in the gunship and if someone happens to hit your mine(s) and they die, the achievement will pop if you are in the gunship when they strike the mine.
