    You'll get this over time as you're playing multiplayer, blitz, and skirmish, but if you want to boost it you just need to use these units against enemy air units.
    Also, if you're boosting with a friend in a private match, Strongholds where you leave one Stronghold uncaptured goes into Sudden Death and you have lots of time to do these achievements for specific kills. smile

    Sometimes if any other type of unit happens to hit your target, then it seems to cancel out the 'kill' for the purposes of this achievement. Sometimes it seems like you have to get the kill 100% with the anti-air unit.

    UNSC:
    any Wolverine

    Additional UNSC units that might count for this achievement because they are good against air units:

    Banished:
    any Reaver

    Additional Banished unit that might count for this achievement because it is good against air units:

    Shadow 00 Foxdance I'm considering taking out all the 'maybe' units from these solutions--I didn't use them, so wasn't sure if they might count, but it sounds like they definitely don't count at all.

    Easy way to do this solo, 1v1 against AI in Skirmish:

    Deathmatch
    9999 starting supplies and energy
    Fog of War off
    Beneficial skulls (Pain Train, Sugar Cookies, etc.)
    Heroic AI (I found that Easy and Normal AIs would tend to stop building units after a certain point)

    AI should be Isabel or Atriox. They tend to build more aircraft units than others (I didn't try vs. Cutter or Forge). Atriox tends to build Blisterbacks and Engineers, and Isabel tends to build Nightingales. I found Isabel to be the easiest I tried.

    At the beginning of the match, you'll want to take over all of the bases and energy totems on the map (leave maybe one or two closest to the AI) in order to corral and keep the AI in a corner.

    Build mostly Wolverines/Reavers to take down air units quickly before they can retreat. Build Cyclops/Hunters to protect the anti-air. Cyclops and Hunters can't attack air units, so you don't have to worry about them stealing kills. Upgrade everything as much as you can.

    Once you have the AI corralled, back off of their base to allow them to build units. When they have some air units built or they start to aggress, engage, kill all the air units, and retreat/allow them to retreat. Repeat until you get the achievement.
