    Alright, me and another guy on here boosted it and here's what we did. Almost every map's original spawn point has an AA gun. Simply have the other player deploy two sticky dynamite and climb in. To help you see what you are doing, have the other player fire the gun straight up into the air and fly your bomber in 3rd person view. This should help you find the gun and line up a shot. It also prevents people on your own team from shooting them out of the turret before you can bomb. The down side is that people on the opposing team love to shoot down bombers and people on yojr team may bomb them first if they see the gun fire. It took us 3 maps for me and the other guy to both get the achievement. We obviously did this on conquest. The best maps are Arras and Narvik.

    This is one of the more challenging achievements to obtain and can get somewhat annoying for most but hopefully with some of these tips you can unlock this with a breeze as I destroyed all 5 in one match with a friend. wink

    - From the Main Menu go to PLAY
    - ADVANCED SEARCH [on the right]
    Game modes: CONQUEST
    Maps: NARVIK + FJELL 652 + HAMADA + ARRAS + PANZERSTORM (these are all the possible maps to obtain this, but I highly recommend Arras & Hamada as these were the only maps my friend and I completed this on, and netted us both the achievement in about an hour of time)
    Slots: 10+
    Regions: ANY
    -Go to VIEW SERVERS or press cn_Y

    Your goal here is to find a server as close to 16 players as possible as this is the minimum amount needed to start a match. We did not have much luck in the morning or afternoon time but in the evening it seemed a lot more active finding servers with this criteria and goal.

    Join the server and invite your friend. You most likely will be on the same team or squad. The trick here is to hit cn_start and got to SCOREBOARD, now have you or your friend go to the profile of a member on the opposite team and click Join Game. Most of the time this will work and now both of you are on opposite teams.toast

    To enter a plane you need to be on the spawn screen and hover over your Home Base (flag symbol). To the right of your Home Base there should be an icon like an propeller. If it's grayed and does not have a number next to it you must wait for a teammate to crash theirs or one to spawn. If there is one available you can hover over it and use the cn_RB to choose a plane that has bombs (little bomb 250lb symbol under plane icon).

    Now for the person on the other team, spawn as Support class and make sure you have an AT Mine equipped (this is unlocked from the start, no level up required), you can also do this with the Assault class and make sure you have Sticky Dynamite equipped (this is unlocked from the start, no level up required). Now look on the mini map for a symbol that looks like a cannon (circle with two lines/barrels), you may zoom the mini map to make this easier by pressing cn_back. These stationary weapons are called Flak 38 or Pak 40, or at least these are the only ones we used. Once you have found one pull out your Sticky Dynamite or AT Mines using cn_right then throwing two down by the stationary weapon using cn_LT. Now enter the gun/weapon.

    Now this part will vary with skill and may take some time to learn to fly (3rd person view helps) and drop bombs and such, but the player on the stationary weapon; his job is to communicate and continuously fire his weapon into the sky to become more visible and easier to locate. Now depending on control schemes used by the plane pilot they will need to switch weapons to go to equip their bombs, then simply find the other player and drop them, in hopes your accurate with your load[hehe] this should set-off the explosives and destroy the stationary weapon along with your friend. You can pick-up more ammo/bombs by flying by a resupply station on either side of the map(icon that hovers in the sky) and waiting in the lower right corner for your bombs to reload. Now do this four more times and hear that majestic sound and relief in your soul to have this rare achievement done. clap



    Thank you to "Damron"! the link to his account is above.

    Damron has kindly made a video guide demonstrating and acting upon the text guide I provided and has given me permission to share his video. We understand some enjoy just watching the solution in action and listening instead, so enjoy! smile

    - An extra tip that I didn't think about and didn't add into my guide that Damron shows in his video is that...If you use the Support class and change to the hammer you can build a stationary machine gun or Flak 38 and Pak 40 at certain locations on the map.

    Ok I see there are 3 other guides, and recently got this and thought I’d add a more detailed method with useful images and guidance to help as I personally found this very hard as not a flying gamer.

    From the Main Menu set up your planes and move your bombers to the middle of the 3 slots, unless unlocked more variations of planes.

    If so add to each of the 3 allocated slots, as shown below:

    Character Set Up (Support Class):
    External image
    Now set up your character which is best to be the Support Class, as this has the AT Mines as default and no ranking up required:

    Game Mode Conquest:
    External image
    Advanced Search
    External image
    Your set up should look like this and now search.

    After each game has ended ensure you quit immediately, then search once again on your preset advanced search on Conquest Arras.

    Map Arras Only:

    From the image above on the Axis side you can see the indication of a propeller with a 2 next to it this is the icon you need to select for your plane with cn_A, you need to be very quick in most games as a lot of gamers want your plane.

    Stationary Weapons:

    Flak 38:

    Pak 40 (far right):

    Points to Note

    1. Do not use any other variant of explosive apart from AT Mines, as other types of explosive eg TNT do not always work and the AT Mine will hit correctly.

    2. Two Players to Boost otherwise it will get too confusing, if in a large boosting group as this will get messy and take you a lot longer to gain.

    3. (a). Try look for 16 - 32 player games as more change of getting a plane, or being attacked by other planes.

    3. (b). Once loaded into a game look on your opposing team for the shortest Gamer Tag, and one of you leave and do a player search and then join off them.

    4. (a). If your being killed deploy with your support Class at your spawn location, and sprint forward and on your main path there should be 1 - 3 Stationary Weapon variants. Throw down both of your AT Mines by pushing cn_right and place with cn_RT either side of Gun then jump in by pressing cn_X.

    4. (b). Now as your opposing team mate fly's near over, shoot up so they can see the flak and direct them into your path.

    5. (a). Once you gain access to a plane immediately press cn_Y to change weapons to Bombs, then click in the right stick for a better view to fly.

    5. (b). Push right with cn_RS heading towards the opposing spawn location:
    Axis = The right side of Point B (point of interest - South to North North/West).
    Allied = The right side of Point D (point of interest - North to South South/East).

    6. If you miss your target or go for another run on a Stationary Weapon you need to reload your bombs, by flying through the ammo boxes which are in a silhouette form of boxes in two locations in the sky to fly through.

    7. The Stationary Weapons will spawn back within a few minutes on being blown up, in there original spawn location to rinse and repeat.

    Once you are lined up press cn_RT to release your bombs to hit and blow up an Stationary Weapon it will come up at the bottom of screen with points for Stationary Weapon Destroyed with a Red Cog Icon and player killed with a Red/Green Ribbon type Icon, this will give you 1 of 5 a 20% on your completion bar.

    As soon as you have done another 4 more times, bleep, blop, achievement unlocked!!!

    This does have a slight delay so you are aware!!


    Happy Hunting

    Here is the easiest way. keep playing and leveling up your Stuka / other bomber until they have 2x250 LB or heavier bombs. they will likely destroy an AA turret in 1 or 2 bombs so drop multiple if you can. The fastest way to do this is to go to a server browser and search for conquest on the map Fjell 652 and search for a game with less than 30 or so players. Then jump in a bomber and take out the turrets. It helps to know where the turrets are at each capture point as they can be hard to spot from the air. I got this in just under 3 full rounds of this method. Good luck guys!

    Okay so i managed to do this completely solo and i'm a terrible pilot, so if i can do it, you sure can.

    Here are some tips:
    1- Play on either CONQUEST - FJELL 652 or BREAKTHROUGH - HAMADA do not bother playing any other mode or map.

    2- Always drop your bombs then go resupply and drop them again, by doing so you'll get kills to lvl up your plane, and get people to focus more on you and get on stationary weapons.

    3- When someone is on a stationary weapon, get as close as possible to it before dropping your bombs to increase the chances that all of them hit the weapon.

    4- PATIENCE . It's not that hard but a bit annoying.

    Good luck to everyone.

    This is not a guide, but merely a heads up. For some reason this achievement seems bugged for me. I don't know if other people encounter the same issue, if so please comment on this.

    I have hit 80% of the progression twice now and when I make my 5th kill it resets to 20%. I have no clue what is going on, but I can't find anyone else having the same issue. There is no information about this at all anywhere......

    When boosting for this, use the AA gun at F on Pacific Storm on the emptiest Conquest server available. It's the easiest hands down
