This achievement is really not hard. I recommend combining it with 6 other achievements to be most efficient and not have to play too many strategy games.

This achievement only counts for the strategy mode, even though you capture the enemy stockpile in campaign!
The stockpile has a little house or cabin looking picture on the island view screen right next to the type of island it is(defense, research, production). It's the only island that will have two icons there.

Load up a strategy game with these settings:
Captured Islands Count: ~75%
Enemy Strength: Weak
Startup Resources: High
Islands Output Rate: High
Victory Conditions:
Destroy Enemy Carrier: Required

Make sure when the game starts that the enemy has at least 5 islands!
Do NOT load a saved game until you have captured the first 5 enemy(red) islands! (you can save your game)
Now, you can simply head straight for the enemy's stockpile, although I recommend you build a few manta's, fuel cells, and your favorite Manta gear. My favorite manta gear was shields(not needed on weak), ammo box, gatling/laser, rockets/missiles, and for this difficulty if you're using shields, NO armor. If you are using ammo box, then use at least MK1 armor.

Once you have your gear built, head to the enemy stockpile island which you should be able to find easily by highlighting each enemy island from the map view, pressing cn_RT, and checking the island details.

Taking over the island will be really easy, but DO NOT destroy the command center, and DO NOT reload a save point! Just use your Manta's to decimate the few defenses, then send in a Walrus, or even use a Manta with hook to carry the Walrus in.
Capture the island and you will get:
Carrier Command: Gaea Mission5 Finger DiscountThe 5 Finger Discount achievement in Carrier Command: Gaea Mission worth 35 pointsCapture the enemy Stockpile
Carrier Command: Gaea MissionHardcore MK.IThe Hardcore MK.I achievement in Carrier Command: Gaea Mission worth 29 pointsCapture 1 island without using load
for capturing your first island without having to load a save file.
Now use the same game, capture 4 more islands WITHOUT loading a save file, and you will have gotten your 5 Hardcore Island Capture achievements!
Carrier Command: Gaea MissionHardcore MK.IIThe Hardcore MK.II achievement in Carrier Command: Gaea Mission worth 100 pointsCapture 3 islands without using load
Carrier Command: Gaea MissionHardcore MK.IIIThe Hardcore MK.III achievement in Carrier Command: Gaea Mission worth 233 pointsCapture 5 islands without using load

Now you can relax about the saves. Build 2-3 torpedoes, and hunt down the enemy carrier who is probably busy attacking your islands. When you find him, try to catch the carrier when it is parked looking at one of your islands. If you can catch it parked, then you can sneak up with a Manta and get a 'cheap shot' on it. Otherwise, having to chase the carrier gets annoying fast as it seems to be able to sail faster no matter what! I personally loaded up two Manta's with torpedoes, got close to the enemy carrier without being detected while it was parked, then launched both torpedoes about the same time by switching Manta's rapidly. Both torpedoes hit before the carrier could react and the carrier joined the fishies!
Select continue when the game asks, and now on to the other achievements!
Start by capturing all the islands in the dead zone, and while you're capturing them all, start switching all of your islands to production/research. The best combination once all islands are captured will be about 15 production, and all the other islands on research(mining). Once you've captured the last island, which for me was a neutral island, you will get:
Carrier Command: Gaea MissionConqueror Of The Dead ZoneThe Conqueror Of The Dead Zone achievement in Carrier Command: Gaea Mission worth 208 pointsCapture all enemy islands in the Dead Zone
Follow this up by queuing up 100 Torpedoes or any other really expensive items, put your carrier into infinite time-warp by running out of fuel, and keep building expensive things until:
Carrier Command: Gaea MissionMillionaireThe Millionaire achievement in Carrier Command: Gaea Mission worth 108 pointsMine over 1 million in resources
And, your final achievement is really simple--queue up as many of the cheapest items as you can, starting with Fuel Cells(50), and build them until you get:
Carrier Command: Gaea MissionHammers And NailsThe Hammers And Nails achievement in Carrier Command: Gaea Mission worth 108 pointsProduce over 1000 items

Congratulations, you've now gotten 7 of the strategy mode achievements in one go!
