it can be done in operations,if you don't want to do random battles.

that doesn't mean it's operations only.

That achievement, is a scenario only achievement. 

OP is just debating the syntax , semantics.

Don't really care about the overall score on planes etc, and really not trying to be a Grammar Nazi, as being an author i'm constantly attacked on my improper use of any phrase or punctuation, now with that said if you read the description of the achievement what would you think?

Im just clarifying the question.

You posted about the Torpedo achievement and then posted a pic with an AA achievement. Just clarifying it.

So I dont know what you are asking me for.

I always read that as “Operations only”. 
Further, it is consistent with their use of the word “can” be completed in Tasks and Combat Missions as well. Listed under “Can be completed” infers All those not listed are the “cannot be completed in” category.

All achievements are listed as "Can be completed in..."

What is listed after that is what modes they "Can be" completed in...if the mode (such as random in this case) is not listed it can't be completed in that mode.

In other words...as that achievement only has scenarios listed as an option that is the only option you get for completing that achievement.

Wording them "Has to be completed in..." & then listing alternate options would also be improper grammar as an achievement (for example) that "Has to be done in Random Co-op Scenarios" wouldn't be completed until accomplished in all of those modes...so they went for the "Can be..." improper grammar option.

Look closer.  The achievement shown is for AA, it;s not the icon for the Torpedoman achievement he is asking about.

 

OP.  Try the wiki.

Generally, can, is used to indicate the only options available, be they one or many. If a child asks what they can do and you say they can go to school you don't expect them to go to the playground. If someone asks what they can have and you say a sandwich or a bagel you aren't expecting them to ask for chili afterwards. Often with these statements there is an implied or  statement, you can go to school or be grounded, you can have a sandwich or bagel, or go hungry. Likewise with the achievements it indicates the only options. Can be done in operations with no other modes listed means only operations, not operations and randoms, if it said can be done in randoms, ranked, and operations you couldn't also do it in co-op. The implied or statement here is, or you don't get credit.


Edit - In other words, in game meaning for can be done is must be done, so the answer to the title is yes.

A synonym for "can be" is "maybe" or "perhaps".

"Perhaps/Maybe it is done in operations." Doesn't work. OP has a point. It should say, "It is achieved in Operations."
