The hardest of the Balance of the force achievements but not as tricky as you might think.
To start you're going to want to hit the main mission hole and complete at least 1 phase of your chosen mission.
This is to earn enough experience points to get promoted to rank 2 which will unlock the LONE FIGHTER mode needed for this cheivo.
You'll know you've done enough when you hear "Promotion available" announced.
Next you need to keep hitting the left orbit to spell out the 7 promote letters and then sink the ball into the main mission hole again,starting the 2 ball promotion multiball.
Simply score a few points and once 1 of the balls is lost you are now rank 2. *DO NOT GET PROMOTED AGAIN!!*(see below)
This will make LONE FIGHTER mode available even if you lose all your balls and have to start a new game,so you don't have to go through the whole promotion process again!
Now hit the 3 standup squad targets located in the centre of the table,once they are all lit get your ball into the bottom right sinkhole which is a tricky shot best hit from the very tip of the left flipper.
This starts Lone fighter mode OR dogfight mode,it is totally random and more modes are unlocked by further promotions so STAY RANK 2!
Once in Lone fighter mode (a video mode) you are guided on a set course and can only tilt your ship left and right with the flippers and shoot with the launch button.
You must now shoot the enemy fighters and survive long enough for your ship to complete an entire circuit (or round) and get back to where you first started.
*PING*! Achievement unlocked!
Sorry for the long guide but I wanted to be thorough.
Happy cheivo hunting! wave

It would appear that playing as the Empire means you always get Lone Fighter mode (Credit goes to Cringer85 and SpKXmasSpirit for noting this in their comments).
