    There appear to be only six types of Alien craft that can actually be shot down by your Interceptors/Firestorms (number of aliens shown per ship reflect a "Normal" difficulty campaign):

    1) Small -- "Small Scout," holding 6-7 aliens
    2) Medium -- "Large Scout," holding 9-10 aliens
    3) Medium -- "Overseer," holding 13 aliens (appears once, after Hyperwave Relay activates)
    4) Large -- "Abductor," holding 11-14 aliens
    5) Large -- "Supply Barge," holding 12-16 aliens
    6) Very Large -- "Battleship," holding 22-23 aliens

    As soon as you shoot down the sixth type of craft, the achievement will unlock.

    Notes: I did not encounter a "Battleship" variant until after the Hyperwave Relay construction was initiated. Also, if you are initially unsuccessful or unable to shoot down the "Overseer" craft when first seen, don't worry, it will return as many times as necessary, until you finally shoot it down.

    RougeRogue1 Not to worry, CyberMartyr88, you cannot miss the Overseer -- shooting it down is necessary to advance the story line past a certain point, so if you're unable to shoot it down when it first appears, it will continue to make regular appearances, until you are able to shoot it down. :)

    kevgeotech Is there any way to spawn the Supply Barge. I believe that is the only ship I am missing.

    RougeRogue1 I don't know of any way to spawn a specific kind of ship, but you might want to try this: Create a couple of saves for your current game, then with one of the saves, start this method, ignoring any ships that aren't supply barges (continue your game, as normal, with the other save, when completed):
