The RBKs probably would fit you, but the 3k is going to break down in no time. It's a low end conventional construction skate, that's not going to last at all. Also, the RBK non composite footbed has been known to sag pretty badly on heavier guys.
A higher end RBK or an easton are probably your best bet in terms of fit. Unless you can find an old pair of high end tacks. They shouldn't run you too much if you can find them.
I really don't know much about the missions though.
I should note that Im not exactly a fattie. Imagine a Jagr build but short. most of my mass comes from my superwide shoulders. Id make one hell of a football player.
edit: to get a general idea of my size, while small, you can see from my avatar im not the smallest player.
