To unlock this achievement you must destroy the laser cannon in the mission entitled "Island Meltdown" which is the 11th mission. This achievement can be unlocked during any difficulty but I highly recommend this on Easy.

This achievement is pretty much a given. While you are not guaranteed to get it, the task is easy to preform and there is ample time to do it.

Below is my guide on how to beat this level (it was written for the hardest difficulty but still works just fine for easy mode):

Mission 11: Island Meltdown

Recommended Power Distribution: Life Support (up on the d-pad) the whole level.

Act quick in this level. You first must destroy the power couplers however if left alone too long they will regain power again. So this is what you have to do. The first area you see (straight ahead) is the base on the east. Fly over there and take it out, don't worry about the enemies too much, just take out the coupler, hide and heal when needed. After that fly away from all enemy contacts and wait for the jet to do a fly by, take them out with repulors and missiles (you will have to hover to reach them, if you die just restart if you want since your so close to the beginning). Once they are taken care of attack the south, west, and north power couplers (in that order). Again don't worry about the enemies just focus on the couplers and move QUICKLY. I found it best to be semi-aggressive and fly down by the water and not up by the land (less turrets, except on the north base). You can lost at least 2 reboots before starting to worry.

After they are taken care of time to take out the large cannon laser. Best thing to do is fly to the middle base's southwest side. Hover in that corner near the edge of the base (so when you need to heal, just drop down/land). Take out the cannon first with RT and Y (you may want to take out that one turret on the structure first) and watch out for jet-pack men with rockets. Easy if you watch your health and heal when needed.
