Despite the low ratio; I actually had to try and get these circumstances to occur as if you're a passive player they might never be near your squad. You'll want to try the below fairly on in a playthrough and not on an ironman playthrough.

When you see Vipers on a mission, its worth saving and then rushing a soldier right next to the Viper or at least somewhere in cover nearby and then instead of the usual overwatch trap just make sure your whole team is ready to take it out the next turn. The biggest issue I had was when a Viper on the map it would usually die whilst going for the strangle.

Any questions feel free to message me.

P.S. The low health vipers in the DLC don't strangle so any DLC missions may not actually be a good place to try this.

As of 9/17/2017, if you've got the War of the Chosen expansion, you can get this by killing a Viper that's strangling a Lost.

It may be a difficult situation to set up, but keep an eye out for this happening during normal play for an easy unlock. You can always load the autosave if you have to overextend yourself to get it!
