Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya stage 3 not possible for my ships

Hello. I am trying to do the missions to earn the Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya. I was able to finish the first two stages without a problem, however in stage 3 I must shoot down 20 planes. This to me seems impossible because with my ships, no aircraft are shot down ever. My highest ship right now is the Minsk and that won't even shoot down spotter planes no matter how much I try. Why would they make a mission if it can't be accomplished unless you play the right kind of ship that not everyone may play?

Just get a T4 cv and kill planes. Also it's not a rush, there are plenty of days left to finish that task.

...so you want them to cater to your ships and only your ships amirite?

I keep a CV in my port just for missions that require them or that are easier for them.  Otherwise, I usually don't play them.

Over any battles. It doesn't have to be in one battle.

no, I understand this. But I never shoot down a single plane even when 2 squads on T6 fighters hover above me permanently.

How did you gather this from what I said? I said they should make them accessible for all ships.

i dunno, Cruisers, Battleships, Carriers and some DDs are good at plane killing.

 

yet because you're using minsk of all things.

The mission should cater to you.

 

Seems legit

I finished mine with the Yubari,  Use low tier ships if you have to.

I said nothing about it catering to me, but should at least be accessible to me.

They cannot make the missions accessible to everyone.  Where do they stop?  If they are going to think that way, then they have to make all missions completable in a Tier I.  I sympathize that you're kinda stuck - I was in a similar situation with the first ARP missions.  But that's just how it works.  As others have said, your best bet now is to get into a T4 CV, Langley is probably better than Hosho for this but whichever one you can get to faster will do.

the best ship for any given mission is not always the highest tier that you have

 

its up to you to figure out what ship that you have would allow you to do the mission,  and if no ship that you have is good, then you need to try to get one that you can do it in, either by grinding a line, or doing the wallet warrior thing

Not necessarily.  Use the ship that is best at AA for it's tier.

You're pretty new to the game, to get AA kills you're going to need to push up other lines than just the Russian DD line.

 

Best to head for Cruisers to get AA kills.

Kirov has decent AA at an achievable tier but you won't get many kills on the way to it.

Otherwise probably best to aim for Cleveland, you can get a bunch of AA kills with Phoenix & Omaha along the way.

Your problem is, that you don't play anything other than DDs.  DD's have crap for AA.

His problem is that he has 3 games that aren't in DD's, and those are T1's.
