The Admiral Makarov is really a German cruiser (Nurnburg) that is under the Russian flag. The special thing about that ship is that it has built in 1/4 HE pen into the ship. So it is a great captain trainer for the Moskva captain that also usually doesn't need IFHE. The ship has built in 37mm of HE pen, which enables it to penetrate the standard 32mm armor of any battleship that it faces.
So why would it be removed? Some people say that it isn't even that great a ship.
Well the answer to that question lies in what WOWS has planned for IFHE and most likely other low tier German cruisers. WOWS is going to change the way that IFHE works. They are also going to change the way that cruisers work, especially light cruisers. As well, they have stated that they are going to buff the armor of most if not all cruisers in the game.
What that means is that the Makarov may end up being the only German 152mm light cruiser to retain the 1/4 HE pen, or essentially built in IHFE, because it is a Russian premium ship. It may end up being one of the only tier 6 light cruisers in the game that will still be able to pen the bow or stern of every single battleship that it sees in it's tier spread. Now add to this the possibility of it also receiving the cruiser armor buff that they say almost all cruisers will receive and now we have a premium light cruiser that will possibly be able to tank other cruisers HE shells while doing full HE pen in return to everything else that it sees. It may end up being one of the most OP tier 6 cruisers in the game, which is why I think they have removed it from even Christmas containers now. Basically the only people who will have it are the ones that already do now.
