Requirement: shoot down 17 planes in one battle, win the battle and don't get shot down.

It's the final step in getting the XP-55. You can skip it but it will cost you a whopping 35 tokens.

I've got this medal before, but don't remember when, what tier or what aircraft.

So now i'm trying for a couple of nights to achieve it.

Best results achieved so far in the Hurricane Mk1a.
Got a couple of 16 kills with win and even  a 17 kills but my team lost that battle.

It seems impossible to earn it in a battle when you are downtiered. (best result here was 14 kills in spitfire Mk1a)
I came close most times with the tier IV premium Hurricane fighter, but so frustrating to miss it with one kill.
I also need a map with at least 4 cap zones.

So my question to the community?
What plane is best suited for the job?

I would use my trusted I-17,

stay low and shred anything close,

hope and pray for the right map and a team victory

Just straight up pick the plane you're best in and can hard carry in. Most of my Marseilles come from my 190 A-5 of all things so its really not an exact science.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

I was able to pick one up (and finish the mission for the XP-75 in my Hurricane II.

I'd go for a Spit or Bf-109E or something and camp over an airfield (preferably airbase for repairs) in the center ... bots will just keep coming when you take it. Also winning is a bit of a problem ...

Yup tried this, it racks up quite the scores, but my team keeps on losing those battles.
Anyway i have marked my starting point, i won't be chasing this Marseille forever, when i reach 35 tokens more than my starting point, i'll go for the buyout.
Best results in Tier IV Hurricane Mk1a an Tier V Spitfire Mk1a so far. Also got a couple of times close with the LaGG 3-4.

When achieving such medals is a requirement, i almost never achieve them.
