As with all of these missions, there's an inherent problem.

When a mission or challenge says "Kill X ships of nation A, while using ships of nation B"... a lot of players will be in ships of nation B, meaning very few targets in ships of nation A will be in the battles.

Scenarios are your friend here. While you will need some friends Killer Whale will get you the Germans and the current Raptor Rescue which you can drop into solo will get you the Japanese ships.

Potentially not doable right now, (Killer Whale,) as there seems to be a ‘bug’ preventing even full divisioned teams from playing off-week Ops.

Was mentioned several weeks ago, and I forgot about it, until witness to it happening last night.

It would be a huge problem if it were randoms only (Duke of York missions, I am looking at you!). The fact that they made it co-op and scenario-inclusive makes things much easier.

If I get a good chunk of playing time this afternoon, I'm going to alternate my Furutaka and Graf Spee. Whether in randoms or co-ops, this will make sure there are Japanese and German ships in the game to shoot at. I have no eligible Soviet ships, so I may as well offer the service.

Four of us ran Killer Whale on Friday evening with no trouble and even that short handed we even got a two star win once because we kept Leroy alive.

It would be fine if it were "get 6 kills while using a Russian ship" or "kill 3 German and 3 Japanese ships".  The combination is the problem.

Good then. Not sure what was wrong then.

Tinfoil hat from a few weeks ago was that WG didn’t want players doing anything but the the Op of the week; so ‘mysterious convenient bug.’

I think that you meant to say:

I may have flipped the letters in there, yes.

I believe in a post in one of the many threads about this particular subject, there should be a counter mission so it gets people into IJN and KM boats to kill Russian ships.  Like there is in the challenges 500k to IJN using a USN and visa versa.

The fact remains that up till this point there is no such mission so your stuck.  People are completing it, it is possible, I used a khab in co op, 4 games done.  Simply ignore everything you should do, blast past ships shooting you,  target the one you need to, drop torps at point blank to secure.  I mean it's co op so it's not hard.

This is like the 30th thread on teh same thing.  Multiple threads can be found in the first 3 pages of the forum.  Adding more will not make any difference especially since all of them have the same suggestions.

yeah I've killed IJN ships at a huge rate, I can't find germans, and when I do, they get sniped from me.

I looked at the first page of the this forum, and saw no titles mentioning this mission or describing the problem.

Then you got lucky, because some of us are going multiple battles in a row without seeing any of the target ships, just lots of Russians.

I waited till there was a low number of people online then did it, my teams were myself and 6 bots, and using a t10 your almost guaranteed you're by yourself

Ah, now that is a smart idea, and does change a bit whether it was luck or smarts.

In 8 battles yesterday, saw a total of two German ships.  Almost had a kill on one but it got sniped from me.
