    Strategy Tip - Using saves!

    Just before you are about to jump on the Jeep - Save and Quit


    Jump on Jeep and take out three tanks with TOW, if you fail to take them out with three TOW, quit and try again.

    After you take out three there is a checkpoint - Save and Quit


    Take out other three tanks, if you fail to take them out with three TOW, quit and try again.

    After you take out last three - blip! achievement is yours!

    WanderingPlotorExcellent advice. I Saved and Quit before I got on jeep. I got the first 2 tanks, but missed 3rd. I quit, and when it reloaded, it showed I had hit 1 tank, so I started from there, looking for 2nd tank. Followed solution, and still got the achievement when I exited jeep after all 6.

    Do this on the mission S.O.G! You will get a chance to get the achievement at the end of the mission. You are told to ride the back of a jeep with Woods and the CIA guy (Hicks?). When driving around you have to kill some enemies until tanks come, which you will have the ability to use the missile launcher. Make sure to have a good aim at the tanks and shoot your missiles at them, which you'll be able to guide them. Only use one missile for each tank. There's three waves that consist of 1, 2, then 3 tanks. If you make a mistake, you can kill yourself with the missile or save and quit. If done right, the achievement pops after getting off the vehicle!!!
