There has to be at least 15 helicopters in this mission, and you only get 10 lock on missiles. Oh no.

Oh, just got it. Spoke too soon! There are 16 helicopters. I didn't see the AMMO box northeast of you after you parachute. I'm 3rd in the world on xbox! :D

If anyone needs any help with this:

Please note that there is an ammo box when you parachute down, so you don't have to shoot the initial 4 like i did in the video :)

Never noticed the ammo box, did it the hard way then I guess. Died straight after so glad the achievement pops when you destory the last one and not when you finish the mission.

I've seen several suggestions for saving rockets for after the jump. What I did was simple just shoot the first 4 choppers down with the PKP. The first 4 will NOT fly away they just keep circling. Will give you plenty of rockets to get to the ammo crate.

This can be tricky even on Regular because as soon as you land there are attack dogs annoying you while you are trying to lock those targets . I recommend doing it in Co-op ..

Did this solo the other day. There's 7 on the roof and 9 on the street. For the 1st 4 up top, just lase them with the missile. For 5-7, lase them when they stop to drop the juggernaut. After you parachute, immediately use your last 3 missiles to destroy 8-10, they land (and leave) very quickly after you do, so don't go for ammo first (by the way, don't miss any of the first 10). After 8-10 are gone, set up a couple claymores for the upcoming dogs, then grab some ammo and get back in cover. 11-12 will come soon after. As you're heading down the road, 13-14 will land. As you approach the smoke, a chopper (15) will fly towards you with missiles- you can hit it while it's coming towards you, if you're watching for it. Do the same with 16. And of course, beware of the missiles they fire. Also,

^^^Oops, was just going to say 'Also, you can press up on the d-pad to see your chopper count'.
