Realistically any solution at this moment for this godawful achievement would fall flat but looking at the achievement objectively would suggest your best chances to get the achievement without boosting someway is to prepare by getting the following:

A heavy tank
Equipping it with a spall liner.
Get the skill Controlled Impact.

(optional equipment/skills: Brother in Arms and Improved ventilation. Both increase skills by 5%)

Do not fret if you do not have Controlled Impact or Brothers in Arms on your tank. Recently, 3/8/15 free gold was awarded to many players. I don't know how or why but everyone I have spoken with received at least 600 gold. For only 10 gold you can swap out learned skills with others at no loss. So say you have a 100% camouflage and 100% repair you can spend 20 gold and replace them with a fully trained Controlled Impact and BiA.

Ramming damage depends on a myriad of factors but two key factors is tank weight to engine power ratio, meaning they lay down the ramming hurt. The following tanks are the ones that weigh the heaviest but also have decent engines and power for their tiers.

Tier V: T1 Heavy
Tier VI: M6
Tier VII:T29
Tier IX: E-50
Tier X: E-50M

However, any tank that weighs more than the one being crushed can be effective. The Tier V M4 Sherman can easily crush other tanks even though it is a medium. Even a lower tier tank can work. The Tier III BT-7 has incredible speed as a light tank but skilled and equipped like mentioned above it does adequate ramming damage with little self damage. But you'd ideally want to try ramming artillery, or lightly armored Light Tanks, or destroyers.

The Spall liner is great because it reduces the damage taken when ramming but also being rammed. It also gives a protective health boost to crew members while slightly helping to mitigate HE shell damage.

One technique is to try and land on top of another tank as yours takes almost no damage and theirs is slowly crushed over time.

Now all you need is the map, and two saps to let you ram them. But at least you can stack the deck better in your favor.

*Edit* Apparently since patch 1.9, the map requirement for this achievement has been turned off.
