Last Minute North Cape Campaign Help

Is there any way I can get High Caliber and Dreadnought with a lot more certainty? (Without a super heal British BB as I don't have one?) Trying to complete the 4th part of the North Cape campaign for the Duke of York, but I'm stuck on this part. Can't really get either, the only times I ever win them are more by luck than anything.

Also, any tips for finishing the 5th part of the campaign once I manage this one? Seems rather difficult to do... My only high tier destroyer is Mahan, so doing 90k torpedo damage in one battle is, well, not something I've ever done before. My only British cruiser is the Leander, so hitting 11 torps with that will be incredibly difficult. 75,000 XP is quite a lot for only 2 stars, and destroying 10 battleships is going to take a lot of battles for only 1 star. Any suggestions for completing this part?

I'll have about 10 hours to complete these two parts so time is obviously a problem. The XP missions that are the final tasks I can complete rather quickly though (Maybe 1 hour each, more or less depending on how nice matchmaking is), thanks to camos and special signals. Just need to find a way to complete the things listed above.

(Don't ask why I'm only barely doing this, I know it's late, but it's still technically possible. I completed the ARP Nachi mission with 7 minutes to spare and the HMAS Vampire mission with 2 minutes to spare. Any suggestions for this campaign are very much appreciated.)

@Speedstang

British bb's and let it burn for a while. do the torps with emerald and kill BB's with them have premium time and work at the 75000 with signals and you can buy the 125 doubloon camo 200@ XP, GL.

High Caliber and Dreadnought is easy in ranked if you aren't a vegetable. I got multiple over the last few days with my Bismarck (long after I completed the  campaign though ... didn't want to start ranked until mission 5 because of the premium day ranked reward).

90K damage was kind of easy in Shimakaze (alas other DDs would swarm in like sharks so one had to get lucky and be on a team with baddies who died early) but I cannot imagine doing it in a low tier DD that isn't either Fubuki or Akatsuki (or Shiratsuyu with TRB) and plenty of luck. I honestly don't think you are going to pull this off in 10 hours because there's also this 45K XP final mission AFTER you get six stars ...

Leander might actually be your best bet for landing 11 torpedo hits among all UK cruisers. It has 8.8 detection range and smoke generator, it can get close to clueless low tier BBs and then single-fire torp them to ensure all torps hit. Between heal (which allows for yolo action), concealment, land cover and smoke cover I've had games where I landed 6+ torp hits with Leander in a matter of seconds. This mission was created specifically for Gallant though, easy to complete if you BUY a premium ship ...

You can complete same mission multiple times for the stars though so have multiple missions active but focus on what you do best.

Play ranked. You need to do less damage to get a HC than in randoms

Thanks for the help, I'll try taking my NC into ranked and see if I can pull those off there, haven't tried it yet.

The 45k XP mission isn't too much of a problem, I stockpile things for situations like this. I've been pulling 12k to 15k XP per game when I spam every XP boost I have, and I should still have enough left to get through the 40k and 45k XP missions.

I really don't think I can pull off 11 torp hits with the Leander, don't think I've ever had that many hits in a cruiser before. The commander is only 7 points so no concealment expert either. I may give it a try though.
