FACTIONS:
There are at least two good factions you can use against each of the nine skirmish opponents you must face when going for this achievement. I suggest using the Soviets or the Imperials.

TACTICS:
I prefer using a "Rush & Ambush Combo Tactic". Ambush and Rush tactics are the use of usually fast and maneuverable units to attack an enemy with speed and surprise while crippling your enemy's resources, most of their production facilities and eventually their army.

LOCATION:
The achievement description is a little misleading, you can use just one map if you so choose to. And Infinity Isle is a great map to use for most if not all nine battles. Use the following to get started for each battle.

RECON AND PREPARATION:
Every smart Commander knows that some recon and preparation before battle is key to victory. Start off on the map your going to play on in a solo campaign. Locate key structures such as Remote Ore Mines, Oil Derricks, Hospitals, Garages, Dry Docks and Observation Post. Rehearse your building queue to include all key components you'll need when the real fight starts.

GETTING STARTED:
Game Settings:
AI Players: 1
Map: Infinity Isle
Initial Resources: 40000
Random Bonus Crates: No

Player Settings:
You’re Faction: Soviets

Enemy Faction: Select one of the three.
Skill: Medium
AI: Select one of the three from the faction your facing.

Building queue> Crusher Crane from MCV> followed by

Two Reactors one from each building que placed on water> followed by

Barracks placed on the ramp leading up to the road and One Ore Refinery (one from each building que)> simultaneously while they are building que up Two Sentry Guns placed on each side of your barracks>

Two Engineers - 10 Flak Troopers - 10 Conscripts all from barracks > Second Ore Refinery > and a Super Reactor placed on water. Send engineers to Oil Derrick and Observation Post. Then drop Two Flak Cannons on the ground near your Construction yard.

Once your super reactor is on-line you'll have all the power you'll need to complete this mission. Build Two Airfields and drop Two Tesla Coils near the ramp close to your barracks. >

Que up 10 Twinblades and 4 MIGs from one airfield and 4 MIGs and +20 or so Twinblades in that order from the other. While their building fend off initial attacks with Twinblades that get through your defenses if any. As soon as you have have 20 Twinblades and 4 MIGs built, group them together (SAVE GAME) and fly in formation north over water then east to attack your enemy from behind. Take out key components like their MCV - War Factory - Naval Yard - Airfield - Barracks first but watch out for rocket turrets. Avoid them by evasion or destroy them with your overwhelming firepower, then finish them off by taking out any Reactors and Ore Refineries that remain. Good Job Commander, you are Victorious!
