    In steps:

    1. Unlock relatively modern plane with a decent (usually 6/10 or higher) anti-ground attack statistic via use of XP tokens (earned via leveling).
    2. Level the unlocked plane via mastery to the point at which you are able to design and outfit custom weapon kit (via use of the plane in combat).
    3. Equip the plane with 4x gun pods (hangar option in pilot records).
    4. Turn an enemy plane (belonging to another player) in Team Battle versus match (player or ranked) with the use of said weapons into a fine example of Swiss Cheese.

    Please note, not all planes are capable of carrying 4x gun pods.
    Here is a brief list of those I have personally verified as capable/not capable.

    Planes that DO offer 4x gun pods option.

    1. Harrier GR9
    2. A-10A Thunderbolt 2
    3. Su-47 Berkut
    4. Su-37 Terminator
    5. Saab-39 Gripen
    6. ...

    Planes that DO NOT offer 4x gun pods option.

    1. F-22 Raptor
    2. Mig-29 Fulcrum
    3. F-16C Fighting Falcon
    4. F-15C Eagle
    5. Mig-23 Flogger
    6. ...

    Use the A10 when available and you can put 6 gun pods on it. It takes no effort to do. A quick press on the gun button and bamm their down (dont forget you have that big cannon firing with the gun pods).

    If you are being shot down (dont know how with all that armour) use support powers.

    You could I suppose do a 1V1 with a friend and take them out with no worry about being shot at.

    Just a fun glitch that is related to this achievement.

    I have only tried this with the harrier GR9 on Open Range with Realistic HP.
    [edit]: works with all planes capable of using 4 gun pods

    Max out the harrier and create a custom loadout with 4 gun pods. When online in a team battle game start with the gun pods. I don't think the support matters.

    When you die, respawn with the JSM/MM pack that is unlocked at some point. This should allow you to have both 4 gun pods and your loadout at the same time.
