    EDIT: Must be done in 1 playthrough!

    If you follow the Main objective you will have a lot of opportunities in the final battle. But it will barely be enough. So it helps to drop a couple in some of the camps. There will be plenty groups of 4 there the skill automatically replenishes in that mission making it even more convenient to utilize it then.

    My achievement did stop tracking at some point, dying however fixed it. So I recommend putting the Tracker overlay on so you can see if and when it happens to you.

    The skill itself
    - You need to use your binoculars with cn_up and then press cn_RB to summon an airstrike. It will take a couple of seconds for the plane to fly over and drop the load.
    - I am not certain if victims that are burned after the drop instead of instantly killed count towards the achievement.
    - To recharge the skill you have to liberate Prisoners of war or Camps / Outposts. You can 'carry' a maximum of 5. However in the final mission you get them automatically recharged so it's not mandatory to pursue any side objectives
    - This air strike is not to be confused with the use of the Mortar. Those kills won't count towards the achievement.
    - If this wasn't obvious already, you have to disable Anti-Air guns in the area for this skill to be enabled. You can tell if it's in effect in your environment when the symbol is crossed through

    z 4assed monkeyTwo commenters here, Stewie1k94 and Seitzz, are dead wrong and should stop using comments to misinform players. FIRE KILLS caused by the air strikes DO COUNT. The achievement tracker proves it.

    Achievement can be boosted a bit by reloading a checkpoint at an objective such as an NVA camp takeover. Individual targets will not count twice, but you can kill one group, reload the checkpoint to undo your air strike use, then pound another group of enemies. Achievement tracker shows cumulative progress.

    - All 25 have to be done in 1 playthrough

    - Use airstrikes to take out camps and groups of enemies along your path to the extraction point

    - As long as your at 50% before the extraction zone you should be good

    - At the very end you get unlimited airstrikes to take out A LOT of enemies so you should have no problem cleaning up the rest of the kills here, also make sure to unassign any homies that will just steal your kills

    - If you need more kills keep in mind before you pick up the documents you can go backward through the map and still have unlimited airstrikes, so you can go back to the camp just before the extraction point (as long as you didn't liberate it earlier) and fire away to get more kills. This is shown in my video as well :)
