So, I need to shoot down 150 aircrafts. I got Bogue just for this (Had the Langley already), however, my fighter squadron usually dies when engaging the enemies fighter squadron without a single kill...

I'm not exactly a CV player, but if you do have 2 fighter squadrons, try to use one squadron as bait for the enemy planes and try to lock them in one location while you use strafing run with another.

If you do that you will kill the enemy fighters AND your own fighters. 

 

If you are keen on strafe practice it in PvE. It is powerful but you can do as much damage to yourself as the enemy. Also, you'll be sending your planes back to the CV for re-ammo more often.

 

Best advise to the OP is to make sure you have your fighter & commander upgrades for AA. Always try to engage enemy fighters 2 on 1 and if possible always over friendly ships (especially cruisers) and never over enemy ships. Barring that hunt enemy attack planes & scouts.

So, problem solved then?

There's not much faster way to do this mission than running a CV with a fighter loadout.

Averaging 20 planes per match sounds about right to me.

I used my Independence and got the 150 planes in 6 battles. 4 normal battles, 1 dud and one epic will get you across the line with east.

20 odd planes shot down per battle is not bad so you should be fine after a few more. However it is achievable to shoot down many more, I've shot down as many as 50, but recently had a few games shooting down 40 in the bogue.

 

The key to combating enemy fighters is to be able to avoid hazards like enemy strafing whilst either pulling off a few yourself, or outmatching their planes using both squads when they finish the strafe. To minimise losses from a enemy strafe, move perpendicular to the attacking planes, then re-engage once they have gone past. Make sure to keep away from the AA of cruisers in particular as well.

 

Don't forget to look for DB and TB to attack as well, they often have a fighter escort so be cautious, but you can get a bunch of plane kills strafing a group of bombers.

 

If you ever run out of planes or only have a few left, use the remaining few to lure planes into your AA. The other CV players are desperate for plane kills too, and the bogue has quite good AA. You can shoot down quite a few planes, especially if you give the focus order to the CV. When I've run into this once, I shot down 8 odd planes after I'd lost most of my planes, you could probably do better.

 

If you don't manage higher kill counts don't fret, there is an element of luck in getting higher plane kill counts. You need to get two carriers per team, and it will depend on the load-out and skill of the other players. Don't expect to do it every time.

i finished this quest with Fuso, the enemy CV usually point their planes on me aggressively that i have to dodge all the torps but the outcome of plane kills is awesome.

As I don't play any CV, I completed this phase of the mission "painfully" with my cruisers nevertheless. If downing 150 planes is painful, the set 300 ships on fire ARP Myoko mission phase is even more so. Notwithstanding the pains, I have both ARP ships in port:playing:

I managed to do this challenge just with ca aa (cheatland and mogami) in around 30 battles, mainly because I refuse to skycane. Actually ended up being easier than the fires challenge. Cheatland was giving me 10-15 planes per game.

This challenge is no reason to become a skycaner!

I got a 67 airplane shoot down by using 2 fighter squadron stacked together and strafing XD. Really satisfying when the enemy sends 20 fighters at you and you strafe them all XD (12 Bogue, 8 Tier 4 Jap CV), I proceeded to wipe out their entire reserve of fighters and chase after their torps and bombers while my teammate torped the shit out of the enemy team XD

Well I did this completely using my Cleveland just hang around BB's a solo one would be good from your own team when the CV player send plains to kill the BB act as his bodyguard and kill as much as you can using the plain and the AA skill also designate target manually which will focus fire the AA on that squad which will kill them very fast also use the AA consumable right at the moment when there's a good amount of plains.
