    I was able to complete this achievement using the very first level in the Empire Campaign. You start with a cannon on the high ground within firing range of every CPU player.

    The CPU AI will usually place harvesters such that you soon end up on islands with nothing but the cannons you started with. You too should place the harvesters in your territory to do the same.

    Of note, you are allowed to build a carrier, or win one from an enemy, so long as you do NOT use it. I find it helpful to build a carrier as it changes the AI strategy to be a little more defensive - they won't leave their islands undefended if they believe you are going to fly over.

    KMetalmindI found it easy too to win the achievement in that map. I have another good tip to it: Usually, the Expert AI punish the weaker enemies first, so you can keep that to your advantage if you are always the strongest one. Try to keep two islands intead of one (the cannon one and other one with at least another spot near it). Have 16 soldiers in each island, and some others near those ones.

    Sooner than later, all the AI will be stucked in just one island, probably not very well defended. Keep building ammo to punish the strongest AI in each turn, and keep building soldiers so the enemy can´t invade you without leaving his island undefended or losing almost all soldiers.

    Each AI will build many planes (in my play each one had 3 planes) but none of them will atack you. They will try to destroy the other players (as they are weaker), so they get their funds and planes. After some time, they will kill themselves using harvester, until there´s only one AI island. When that starts to happen, you will have many spots with 16 soldiers and a bullet every turn, so the AI won´t be able to fight you. Keep firing with your cannon and you will win.

    I found it funny how I won an expert match by only losing 5 soldiers with a cannon. Being always stronger than them will net you easily a victory without using any plane.
