To earn the Blitzkrieg achievement in StarCraft 2 you are supposed to complete the Media Blitz mission in under 20 minutes on hard. I keep coming in right at 21 minutes. Not sure what's wrong with my strategy but I can't quite crack 20.

What strategy have you devised to earn the achievement?

Here's a helpful link with a full description:

http://wiki.teamliquid.net/starcraft2/Campaign/Media_Blitz

Strategy summarized from the above link:

During the surprise attack, start with the mech-base destroying all siege tanks and factories. Use the remaining time to destroy as much of the starport base as possible.

After the surprise attack, immediately send the Odin, initial Thor, and 2 repair SCVs to attack the 2 bases closest to your own base. Concurrently, produce two more Thors and an armory to research vehicle upgrades.

Right after the two small bases are destroyed, take out the starport base, the mech base, and finally the infantry base.

Continue to produce & deploy Thors and repair SCVs throughout the mission.

The strategy from that link totally worked but it'd be good to summarize the link. This discussion on meta.stackoverflow explains why: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/13369/… –  ahsteele Aug 16 '10 at 2:18
