The easiest way to get this is to do it on level 1 on easy. Play through the game normally, until you get to the part where you can get in the tank towards the end. Drive that to the last boss.

When you get to the last boss, shoot its "segments" with the tank until most of them have lost their armor and the whole thing is smoking, now get close to it and press LB. This will cause your tank to self destruct (a frontal attack) and cause damage to the boss. If you did a good job getting its health down it should die and the achievement will pop.

The frontal attack has an X-like damage pattern, narrower at the top. Try to line up your tank so that when it explodes, those two upward arms of the explosion both hit the boss. It's kind of hard to explain but you'll see the first time you press LB to perform the attack. Luckily, level 1 is very easy so you can easily try again if you whiff your attack.
