I had a similar game with 23 shot down.  I'm thinking it's not working in the current game mode.
Fly crooked and shoot straight.

If true that is a big screw up considering the F5F operation order comes with a 2 day completion deadline.

I contacted support.

You cannot earn Flying Paladin during the event

For me after 15 kills in a heavy fighter it was some blue badge which i thought did not count but to big surprise it passed.

Two days to complete 15 missions. BUT mission 5 of 15 can't be completed for 24 hours.

 

Not because the requirement is difficult.

But because WG has disabled the required badge.

 

I wonder what other wonderful surprises are awaiting in missions 6-15.

 

Good old WG just can't help themselves.

As far as I'm aware only Flying Paladin is locked in Bomber Escort mode. There're a couple of other achievements that are next to impossible to achieve but are not actually impossible

The event was designed in part as a token sink...or to make you purchase the "certificates" instead.

The blue badges are actually a holdover from Westwall and the Do-335/XF15C missions. There were a number of missions in those op orders that could only be completed during the weekend events

Flying Paladin Badge is the reward for personal aircraft-specific missions, during the Bomber Escort these missions change for some types of aircraft.  So, if there's no such a mission you cannot get the badge.

Thanks for the explanation. I got the badge in my first battle today.

Why can't they just have a popup over the mission, that lists the actual requirements.   Sigh, wg.

You can extend the time for missions with tokens.

Everything's stupid, everything's wrong

MGs are too weak and cannons too strong

The ju-87 is simply a waste

xp past the do-17z with great haste
