It's in the Test Arena! Once you enter the arena destroy one of the drones and look up at the center of the ceiling. You will see a panel there that can be blasted away. Boost to the upper level, blast it, go up and get the part, come back down and destroy the other drone.

What's important is that you use a head that has a high hacking rating. This way you can get into the doors to get the part. You want to make your way over to the room with two doors, one with a lock straight ahead of you, and a unlocked door to your left. Go through the left door and into the room at the end of the tunnel. You will see a bunch of crates on the floor, use your laser blade to destroy them. On the floor you will see a grating, shoot it.

So must hold out against a lot of aerial attacks and fend off and enemy AC. If you destroy them quick enough you will have time to raid the train for the part. It should be in the next to the last car. But by seizing the part you automatically fail the mission so you should save this part for last after you have a 100% Achievement rating.

You can run through the inside of the base without fighting and take minimal AP damage. In the last area you can destroy a few radars and almost all of the enemies from within the hallway shelter where you enter this area by ducking in and out of the door.
