Go to Cupinook 12 C, Zetford Horizons

There is a spawn of 3 skimmers there with no turrets unless you land in your SRV. Lower your ship to about ground level and blast the skimmers from above. Save and exit the game and reload it. The three skimmers will be back.

The skimmers won't shoot you in your ship, but if you get too close they can significantly damage it if they run into you. I used fixed lasers but I'm going to guess that dumb fire missiles will work better.

*authors note*
- If you can't hit things that aren't targeted from your ship ignore this solution and get in your SRV.
- You will lose rank in that system, get a bounty, and will earn 0 in game credits for doing this.
- I created this with the intent of being the fastest and safest way to do this achievement. If you care about certain criteria in the game such as making money or that your faction rank goes down, then don't do this.

Well, if you go to HIP 19026 B 1 C -17.9575 // -152.6994 there is an alien site (first one discovered) Near the middle, land your ship and drive around. Alien craft called scavengers will be floating around (sometimes in the ground) These count as skimmers kills. Just drive around blasting these things away, once engaged they may defend themselves but are very weak and no threat to your SRV. The best part is they re-spawn so you don't have to reload your game, just keep driving around. Hope this helps!
