    The easiest way to shoot down the gunship is on Bandar Desert. Play as the Russian side. When the US spawns a gunship, shoot it down with the Pantsir-S1 AA Gun. It cannot be destroyed and easily shoots it down in a few bursts.

    This is the easiest method because you can't be killed, you can't run out of missiles, and you do not have to know how to fly a plane to do it.


    The developers have mover the AA gun back closer to the airfield since I wrote this. This makes using this solution slighlty more difficult. Just wait till the Gunship is in optimal range before you start to unload into it.

    Evil KenivlI can confirm this after trying it with a heli and a jet. Theres to many people shoting at you even more when they see youre about to firing at the gunship.
    But i wanted to note that you should wait for the right moment. When you see that there are other people attacking the gunship wait till its burning and then give it all you got.
    I was 2 or 3 times about getting the achievement when the plane startetd to burn and i ran out of ammo (overheat weapon) and a jet shot it down right in front of me.
    Hope this helps a bit. Kind Regards

    Ack 4ttackIt's not that hard to shoot down the gunship with a tank,just equip canister shell and play aloboroz mountain and it's actually quite easy(worked for me anyway).
    You can also use the stationery AA's to shoot down the gunship aswell cause I did this on bandor desert(worked a lot easier than a jet)

    Solution 2: Take a jet and hold the brakes while shooting at the nose of the C-130.
