    You can get this during normal play by driving off a cliff and landing on top of an enemy tank of any tier. The weight of your tank will crush and destroy the enemy (you need to survive for the achievement to pop). Some tanks are better than others but generally you will have more success with tanks that are reasonably fast but also heavy (for their tier).

    Good maps to try this on are from the high ground on Abbey, Cliff (obviously), El Halluf, Karelia, Komarin, Malinovka, Mines, Mountain Pass, Pearl River, Sacred Valley, Sand River, South Coast and Westfield

    Here are some examples of how to go about it:



    It's possible to do this in any tank if you squash the right enemy but it's generally not a good idea to try this on heavy tanks (unless you're in an even heavier tank) and best to go for anything else (light, medium, TD or artillery but the lighter the better). Some examples of good tanks for this at lower tiers are:

    T18
    M3 Stuart
    M5 Stuart
    M4 Sherman
    T1 Heavy
    Cruiser III
    Cruiser IV
    Pz. II or III (most variants)
    Pz. III/IV
    Leopard
    T-34
    KV-1S

    Geordie ScoutSorry I misunderstood your conment. I watched your video a few times and it looked good to me. Could be the Xbox One achievements not unlocking (again).

    TheLastDonYeah, that is what I was thinking. Maybe it will take a week to unlock like some of my other ones. I wonder if anyone else who has got the achievement on Xbox one could chime in and tell me if they got it immediately or it took a while to pop.

    Sera Di SiahI've landed on and killed an enemy tank multiple times, but everytime I died myself along with it and got no Achievement. :(

    Geordie ScoutYou need to survive the impact fot the achievement to pop. I've edited the solution as I had mixed this up with Kamikaze (where you don't need to survive the impact). Sorry for the confusion.

    Using a light tank will generally result in your death so maybe try a medium or heavy.

    MegaManSurvivesI used a T-150 (Russian tier 6) and crushed an enemy on Overlord (Xbox One), had half my health left so I killed another tank via shots then I died a little while later. The tank I crushed was at half health before I crushed it, does that matter? No unlock. Got tips?

    olde fortran 77The key points are...
    being completely off the ground
    being in contact with the victim's tank
    killing the victim's tank.
    I listed it this way because I finally got the achievement and didn't land on top of them at all. My light tank was behind the enemy tank, with a rock formation behind me. The enemy kept backing up and instead of pinning me between the tank and the rock, my tank was squeezed up the face of the rock formation until I finally ended up entirely on the back deck of the enemy tank. I was still able to point my gun at him and I when I finished him off, the achievement popped.
