I was up againast a GZ Test II this evening, regular match with one CV to a side, and shot down 44 of its planes, and two other scout planes.  I did not receive a Clear Skies award.  I guess I don't understand show the award works - I thought it was 50% of the planes? Do the untapped/unlaunched scout planes count against that total?

Isn't it 50 planes as well, or is it thirty?

 

And it may not have been half. Including everything in the hangar, and all the float planes, a T8 match has A LOT of planes.

I read at least 30 and 50%. I'd have gotten more but a DD sank me after slipping past the other ships during a typhoon

Considering that the GZ has 72 aircraft, and most of the cruisers and battleships have at least 3 or 4, that's a lot of aircraft.

It's for the total # of enemy planes combined (scout fighters + all unlaunched planes).  Most ships at T8 or above have 4+ so that's alot of planes :(

Lol maybe if you sink the enemy CV those unlaunched planes should count since technically the planes are down since the ship carried them down to the sea floor...

Catapult aircraft add to the total that have to be shot down.  Very, very hard to get Clear Skies as a Non-CV.  It wasn't always like this, earlier at launch a lucky AA ship could realistically get Clear Skies.  Used to get them all the time with Cleveland and Atlanta, but it's unlikely these days.  WG for some reason screwed it up.
