All missions were looking achievable until I saw the Gabreski.   :(   I guess WG really wants to sell some certificates.

Yeah, there are a few players that can get it regularly. I'm not one of them. I have two. Hunter and FW-189C.

I have managed to get 1.  My very first flight in the F84F (against all bots).  I could never manage it in the Hunter.  The FW is interesting :medal:.  I came close in the IL-40P once but fell 2 aerial targets short.

I've got 4.
One in the Hunter, 3 in F-84F.
Last one, last week.

But whenever this comes up as a mission requirement, i can't seem to get them.
Same for palladin and khozedub

I guess the last time was way too easy so they decided to add a Gabreski brickwall...those will be certificates well spent.

I had a single, solitary Gabreski once.  I guess WG decided it was excess to my requirements because it disappeared one day.

Gabreski isn't even the hardest mission.  Did anyone notice the mission right before that? 

Destroy 9 enemy fighters in a single battle
 

I am seriously hoping that is a typo.  Every other mission is in any number of battles.  There are only 2 fighters per side so you have to shoot them both 4 and 5 times and wait for them to spawn in between.  Even if it is a long battle on a 5 sector map with a central airbase that is going to be next to impossible.  If you camp the middle how many other planes are you going to have to kill in between....You need 30+ kills in a battle.  That is assuming the fighters go to the middle every single time they respawn.  If they go anywhere else you won't get your kills.  You can't camp the spawn or the battle will be over to quick because your bots will take the other sectors.  Basically you need a really busy battle with a lot of humans, they all have to be playing fighters (maybe 4 fighters on the red team), and they all have to suck, and it has to be a 5 sector map that isn't over too quick.  A lot of things have to line up just right or it will never happen.  

 

Gabreski on the other hand I get regularly.  I have 243 of them. I can even do it at tier 4 using the hurricane 1, xp-44, blenheim, Ar-197, or i-16(29).  I got two just this morning in the beaufighter and P-38J at mid tier.  F7U, hunter, and F84 are all good for it at high tier.  If I can get gabreski's easily yet I am concerned about 9 fighters in a single battle you know it is a hard mission.  If it is a typo and it is any number of battles, or if air defense aircraft count than it is doable.

I did not look. Since I will have to buy a certificate for Gabreski, might as well buy one for this. XP-44 is in bold (why?)

The last time around there was a HF kill mission. The ADA HF didn't count. Either it's broken or it really counts only enemy.

 

Now I'm reminded...there are only 2 light fighters and 4 multiroles as fighter force for some reason. It won't look good.

as far as I’m aware, the world record for one player’s deaths in one battle of WoWP Conquest Mode is 6, which I saw a a few days ago. But to die that much, you have to be HOPELESS, and the enemy has to be good.

 

 

9 Enemy Fighter kills in one Conquest Match is almost impossible. It’s much easier in the infinite respawn, long match mode Bomber Escort, because you can kill them basically the whole match, which is a LOT LONGER than Conquest. 12-15 fighter kills in Bomber Escort is not unheard of.

An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

I am disappointed that my speculation about Tornado Mastery was wrong. Replacing Protection expert in a fighter is easy enough. Replacing it with a skill that grants +10% hit points ? Ugh! :facepalm: 
Throwing on a +10% airspeed would have been better and by better i mean it would give stock teir 7's a run for their money ... and certainly makes for a God tier Mastery that is competitive with the Zero master's agility!

And Yes Aerialist is absolutely Nuts being a skill that can get used in any British fighter.
 


Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
 I start on the right track and then sometimes make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ...
