Aces High (Gold): You captured all high value targets.
-You must capture all 55 high value targets alive.  This must be done in one play through.  Make sure you save before and after capturing each HVT.  You may want to save on multiple files just in case.  If you manage to get one killed you will have to quit and reload your game.  The best way to keep them alive is to kill everyone else first.  If you are carrying the HVT he can’t be killed.  This is helpful when looking for a landing zone.  Grab the HVT and run to a safe place before you put him down.  Once you are in the clear call in the chopper.

Nothin’ But a Good Time (Silver): You destroyed 200 objects from the gunner seat in co-op.
