I would really like to know the distinction.  To me, it's shooting down anything that's flying.  Apparently to the game, only certain Aerial Targets actually get counted when killing them for Operation orders.

So in order to get the confusion out of the way, is an Aerial Target anything flying or is it subjective to the situation at hand?  A clear answer / definition of what counts as an 'Aerial Target' and what does not would be nice.

 

PS: Doing op orders for Vampire. I've killed over the needed amount of 'Aerial Targets' multiple times including an ace and it still did not count.  Ticket time?

Multiple winning battles. Some planes count, others don't.  Also is there a tier minimum on Op Orders?

There is a minimum on Ops Orders, tier 4 or 5

I love this! I've spent the last 4 hours non-stop trying to get more than 15 kills to actually register.  I know for a fact I've gotten it twice already. Seems every time I screen shot the game it mysteriously shuts itself off AND deletes the screenshot.  Solid bit of programming there!

Enemy combat group plane, Air Defense aircrafts, and attack flight bombers.

 

Make sure to mouse over the kill number on second tab for breakdown of what you have killed. Something might be going on...



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

an "aerial target" is an enemy plane, and ADA, or a bomber from a bomber flight. In the context of missions, this stands in contrast with "members of the enemy combat group" which only includes the 12 enemy planes in the team list that you are flying against.

That's good info. Now tell the devs to make it count on my account because I'm [edited]tired of doing it over and over.

6 hours later...still no registration of 'Aerial Targets'.  Sometimes it registers ADA, other maps it doesnt. Bombers get counted every other game or so with them in it.  

 

Lovin the quality control here!

That would most definitely be a bug.

Ace should count any aerial targets, including NPCs and enemies, and doesn't matter if you won.

As it was correctly said "aerial target" includes ADAs, enemy planes and bomber flights. For the Vampire mission there's also a win condition. Screenshots would help a lot as without them the support cannot help you out. Try to check C:/Users/Pictures/World of Warplanes if any of your taken screenshots remain. If not we will try to help you from our side and check what is wrong.

Air Defense craft do not count, just the red team planes.

Yeah would be awesome but the program refuses to take screen shots. Crashes the second I hit printscreen.   No, I did not install or change a thing since I used the screen shot button last week.
