You'll need the Foundry to build SHIVs, which is unlocked via the Experimental Warfare research. Inside the Foundry, complete the Heavy Weapons Platform project to unlock SHIVs for construction.

The cheapest way to do this would be to build three SHIVs and one augmented soldier. However, to knock out two birds with one stone, you'll want four augmented soldiers at the hefty price tag of $140 and 200 MELD, and one or two SHIVs. Each augmented soldier needs to be a different class, so one Heavy, Sniper, Assault, and Support.

Now take your robotic army into battle. An abduction mission or a Scout class UFO would be ideal, due to the lower number of aliens. At the end of the mission, the achievement unlocks. If you had the recommended four augmented soldiers, you'll also unlock an additional achievement.
