    There's not really 100% great fast way to do this other than grinding it out, but I do have a few tips for what I did to get this quick. Usually averaged about 13 kills a game according to the career screen.

    I played pretty much exclusively as an interceptor/A-wing with seeker mines and the hull repair. The seeker mines were probably responsible for 1/3 of the kills I got and will almost always lock on to somebody, even if you're just spamming them which is basically all I did. The recharge on them is quicker than the recharge on any of the countermeasures so in those moments where you're chasing each other in a circle, it's a cheap way to get kills, and even if you don't it usually forces them to change trajectory and you can catch them that way in an A-wing or interceptor fairly easily. It also one shots other interceptors and A-wings who for some reason for me would just fly right into them. People may disagree with the hull repair, but I used that because when you're going head on against another player and you spam activate it, it gives you a slight edge over them if they don't have it, and evens the playing field if you're in an interceptor going against an x-wing.

    If that's not your play style or you completely disagree, no worries, there's certainly no wrong way to grind this out. I saw there wasn't a guide or anything and wanted to encourage people to comment and add their own tips to help each other out.

    The lack of achievement tracking is frustrating for this one, but you can get a good idea of how many kills you have in dogfighting using this tip.

    1) On the upper-left-hand corner of the main screen you'll see your pilot's avatar with the word "Social" cn_back open that.

    2 Open your own player profile and navigate to the dogfighting section. There are lots of stats here but not exactly what we want. Thankfully, we can derive what we want from what is here.
    - Under Dogfight>Offense, record your "KD Ratio"
    - Under Dogfight>Defense, record your "Total Deaths"

    3) Simply multiply these two numbers to get close to your number of dogfighting kills.

    Happy hunting!
