    The key here is to build palisade walls all along the coast. The Turkish fleet will actually attack the walls but with a navy; they won't live long enough to create a big enough opening for their troop transports. As you develop a stone economy, add castles where you feel vulnerable.

    Although you might miss the odd transport, they just can't unload when there is nowhere to land.

    jantranceThis achievement WON'T unlock if you defeat the Turkish (purple on the map) in the southeast, it only unlocks if you win by the wonder years reaching 0.

    I destroyed the turkish without constructing the wonder, it did win me the game but the achievement didn't pop. So after reloading the game and building the wonder and waiting for 200 years I again won the game and then it did pop.

    SirThrobbalot69can confirm what jantrance wrote above - defeating Purple will NOT unlock the achievement, you actually have to build and defend the wonder for it to unlock as of 09/06/2020

    itZ BloodhunterI would like to add that when they unload between your gated city and the city of your allies, this will void the achievement. Only 1 ship tried to go there for me, but to be safe it would be smart to pallisade that as well. Here is also plenty of room for some castles.

    I recommend playing the mission normally and focus on getting some fireships. Spread them out as there are only 4 routes they can take. The enemy ships are scripted and come in the same sequence. You can save after every succesful prevention

    Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition (PC) - Achievement - Battleship

    Win the Historical Battle "Lepanto (1571)" without allowing any Turkish Transport Ship to unload on your shores.

    There are only a few areas on your land that the Turkish fleet will attempt to land on, so it's not a case that you have to defend the entire coastline. In this video, I split my naval forces in to four groups - Each controlling an area where troops can potentially land. Your given a verbal notification when the enemy tries to land as well, so be mindful of that and react when you hear it to make sure your taking them out as soon as you can. It should be noted that they don't try to land immediately - You do have some time before the first Transport Ship will come, but this appears to be a time trigger. It is not triggered by you allying with the Greeks or completing your Wonder. There are a few small islands off your coast (some containing gold and stone) that you can build towers on to help you defend. You have access to Bombard Towers which make short work of the enemy ships.
