No real guide here, since this simply takes time. I just have a few quick tips:

- target = a building, that you have to hit with a bomb on the ground, enemy planes do not count as a target
- submarines DO count as targets
- intel photographs DO NOT count as targets
- supply runs DO NOT count as targets
- to my knowledge, there is no way you can destroy flak and machine gun nests
- as you complete the campaign, you CAN continue with your crew and unlocked equipment for your plane
- by the end of the campaign, you should have somewhere around 80-100 targets if you didn't grind too much
- as you replay missions after the campaign, try to choose missions with multiple targets (i.e. Operation Overlord with 4 targets, destroying V1 launch sites with 5 targets) to make things go faster
- if an objective of the mission is to "guard the ship that is about to blow something up", that destruction also counts as a target
- if there are no multi-target missions available, try quitting out of the application and going back in, missions generate randomly
- achievement tracker counts the targets as you destroy them, you do not have to complete the mission afterwards for it to count
- targets count even if you "fail" the mission with emergency landing

If you have any additional tips, post them in comments and I will add them to the solution.

Tip from Epsilon Theta - Destroying recon targets does count as a destroyed target. To also get money for the shot, select a bomb and open the bay doors. Then position your cursor over the "Take a photo" button. Once the target in your reticule, press cn_A followed by cn_Y.

Best missions according to KingTJ 1126

1. Doodleburg blitz (5 targets, close to each other, short mission)
2. Operation Chariot (5 targets, further apart, but not that bad, medium length)
3. Operation Overlord (3-4 targets (I found that going to the airport was a waste of time so I'd quit out after the artillery, but that's just me))
4. Sub hunt (3 targets, but with the sub's diving it can get a little annoying)

If these weren't available I just quit out and reloaded, also depending on how upgraded your plane is, it's quicker just to quit out after bombing the targets.

Happy hunting!
Epsilon ThetaI tried destroying a reconnaissance target and it gave me XP. Inconclusive if those count as proper targets for this achievement. Will post an update once I find out.

Update: Destroying recon targets does count as a destroyed target. To also get money for the shot, select a bomb and open the bay doors. Then position your cursor over the "Take a photo" button. Once the target in your reticule, press cn_A followed by cn_Y.

KingTJ 1126Thank you for this, it allowed me to be the 12th 100% on-site :) also it's also good to know that operation chariot also gives 5 targets, making the best ones to farm in my run through: 1. Doodleburg blitz (5 targets, close to each other, short mission)
2. Operation Chariot (5 targets, further apart, but not that bad, medium length)
3. Operation Overlord (3-4 targets (I found that going to the airport was a waste of time so I'd quit out after the artillery, but that's just me))
4. Sub hunt (3 targets, but with the sub's diving it can get a little annoying)

If these weren't available I just quit out and reloaded, also depending on how upgraded your plane is, it's quicker just to quit out after bombing the targets.

Epsilon ThetaYou need to encase the button tags in brackets, [ and ] for them to be recognized by the site!

JaxxiczekEdited, thanks! :)

Epsilon ThetaYou are welcome. Good job on your solution!

planting42Radar installations once you 'trigger' them are targetable as a nav point. They increment the achievement if they are targetable or not.

if you mess up and destroy the recon target first... you can still take a photo of the smoke cloud for credit.

Hey colonel, I know we were supposed to run recon but... eh... well we blew it up... Here is a photo of the ruins!

chmccarthyI suggest Challenge Mode. Its a long mission until your crew dies, but you get unlimited bombs as long as you complete the missions, and they give you tons of targets to bomb between survive missions and fighter missions.

JaxxiczekTried it, but time-wise simply replaying the mission with high target number is waaaayyy faster.

APOLLOxN7I hit all the targets in Doodlebug Blitz and quit out after the last one. When I tried to reload it was 3 other (different) missions. Can I get the same one to load over and over?

Epsilon ThetaNo, missions, except for story progress before completion, is randomized within a specific subset of targets. After you have completed the game once, all missions are available at random.

enerjeffluxOperation Chariot should be the best one for this achievement; if you defend and wait until the allied ship blows up at the objective location, it counts as a target giving this mission a total of 6 targets.

macmaniganTook less time than I thought to grind after completing the game. By cherry picking missions and quitting early you should be able to get 50 targets in an hour at least. Don't forget to fast forward after taking off and use fuel boost.

wildwest08Thanks to everyone for the tips. This made a 5/5 game for me a 4.5/5 for this unnecessary grind. I think it should be 100 drops. That would be a little grindy but not terrible

JeroenRosI can confirm that allowing the boat to destroy the port in Operation Chariot counts as the sixth target!
