    You can get this achievement during the 16th mission called "Severed Ties". As with every other misc. achievement in this game you can play the mission on the easiest difficulty setting and still get it!

    In this mission you will be controlling a tank. By pressing the Y button you can switch to your guided rockets. You will need to use those to take out 3 helicopters without missing a shot.

    When you get to the first area you will be only up against other tanks at the beginning. Soon enough three helicopters will arive. Switch to your rockets and try to take them out. Don't worry if you don't hit them. As long as you press the Right Trigger with the rocket right next to them you will destroy them. But one of the choppers might get shot down by your AI partners but don't worry there will be more.

    You're next objective will be to get to the next area. In this area your objective is to take down some Anti-Air vehicles. But there will also be several helis in this are. Just look for them and use your remote missiles to take them out following the advice I gave.

    *Note: Video was taken on the 360. I can replace it with a video taken on the One but I don't want to put two copies of each achievement on my YT channel. If somebody would rather see an Xbox One video let me know and I'll happily provide one for you. Thanks for reading*

    TheIcemanComethJust want to add that you CAN get this across checkpoints if you die. I got the first two in the first area, but got killed in the airstrip area, which was at least one checkpoint after that. The achievement popped after the first chopper I shot down at the airstrip.

    At the beginning of the mission Severed Ties, you will be controlling a tank and driving into a field filled with satellites. At one point you will be instructed to use your guided missiles in order to take out helicopters that are flying in. There are only the 3 helicopters and they will all fly in through a canyon, so the easiest way to get this is to drive straight to the canyon (as I do in the video) and shoot down the three choppers as quickly as possible with the guided missiles. If you wait too long the other tanks will destroy them first so be sure to be quick about it

    Simply load up the campaign mission 'Severed Ties' and proceed until Command informs you that you have enemy helos inbound. Once you have spotted the helos you must change your weapon to the guided round and launch them at the helicopters one by one (you may detonate the round next to the chopper, it does not have to be a direct hit. As long as the chopper blows up you are fine) and each round must result in one chopper destroyed. You can revert to the last checkpoint if you fail as it is just before you engage with the choppers.

    I created this video to help:

    Hope this helps.
