Like a small, rare, nocturnal animal in a rain forest,  the Makarov is often spoken of, but seldom seen ...

Whenever I see one, I go green with envy and then try my upmost to sink the one who dares to taunt me.

I really want my own Comrade Nurnberg. :Smile_sad:

Nurnbergski :cap_haloween:

I can't understand why they don't put her back in the shop. Nurnberg is actually not a bad cruiser if you can leverage her pluses and try to mitigate the fragility; I would welcome a premium German version, although she'd work well with the Russian cruisers up to Tier 8 as well - especially once that curious discontinuity which is the Kirov is removed. She's not the only one - fully-upgraded Bogatyr and then Svietlana represent a shift to 130mm guns from the 152s of Stock Bogatyr. One of these days, when I have more ECXP than I know what to do with, I'm going to put 19 point captains with BFT and AFT in both 130mm Bogatyr and Svietlana and show the bots a very hard time.

It's one of the few ships I'd actually be tempted to spend on, it would give me another Russian cruiser that's actually worthwhile.

I think it was removed because it's both German and Russian.

Balancing department: 

"It's Russian so it must be stronk! But it's German so it must be weak to remind them who won WW2..."

"ERROR DOES NOT COMPUTE"

And so the ship was removed due to the internal damage it was doing to the balancing department's calculators.

Is the armor scheme different from that of the Nurnberg?

Makarov doesn't have the German 1/4 pen so WG took her off the market.

Yes, she does. Her HE pens 38mm of armor.

Oh, thought you may have been referring to the other Phantom:

My nurnberg has a 19pt captain and grinds a lot of elite xp in ops.

Ship has 2.6 mill xp on it lol

Phew.

It's a good thing there aren't 10+ other Soviet premium cruisers available to do the exact same thing.

You had me worried there for a sec.

Something about people wanting a ship that's already in the game bothers you? 

Personally, for me, it would be a Russian cruiser I actually would like to play, which doesn't apply to the tech tree cruisers, and wouldn't seem to apply to most of the premiums either.  KK and Smolly are the only two I really enjoy.

Every time I see a Nurnberg I just smile. Makes me think of all the exploding Nurnberg comments I used to read and witness in game. Grinding the Nurnberg is like a right of passage in this game.

Nurnberg is probably my favorite tier 6 cruiser... it certainly wasn't a grind compared to some other ships I've had to suffer through.

I thought Emerald held that title? :Smile_veryhappy:

EDIT: On reflection, it could be Omaha. You have to work through Omaha twice in order to do both USN CA and CL lines.

She’s a decent little ship, probably not worth the attention that she receives, but she’s not bad. It would be nice if WG would just make her generally available already, but I think that she might have been tied to some sort of exclusive offer on the CIS server.

I think that's because they've been hunted to extinction.
