    Mission 16 - Severed Ties

    Il be honest here. I really do not understand this achievement description BUT the achievement unlocks.

    At the beginning of the mission you will be in a tank. And after proceeding on you will encounter a large array of satellite dishes and have to deal with 6 or so tanks.

    Your team-mate will call out to tell you helicopters are in-coming. You can see the red dot at the top of your screen. And I believe they are in groups of 3, hence the 3/3 kills needed for the achievement. Change weapon by pressing Y. To fire use RT and guide the missile, You can detonate at any time by pressing RT again.

    In the video I take out the first group of 3, but it doesn't unlock until i take out 1 from the second group of 3? But just keep destroying the Helicopters until the achievement pops.

    I apologise for not being able to write this better, Please if you understand this achievement let me know :)

    crunchb3rryChances are one of your allies killed the chopper a split second faster and stole the kill. They will take them down on their own, you can sometimes see them get blasted out of the sky while you're guiding the missile up to it. It's just a matter of being quick and hoping your hit scored the kill.

    Mobius EvalonI think what the achievement is getting at is shooting down 3 choppers without missing. I killed 2 of the 3 in the first attack group immediately at the beginning of the mission, then the third one was killed by a friendly but my rocket had enough fuel to hit a fourth chopper behind it to unlock the achievement.

    That's also a point worth mentioning -- the guided rockets have limited range.
