Lots of less than great ships, and dockyard ships (sure to anger people who spent $300 on them :cap_popcorn:)

Tier V–VII ship Tier VIII–IX ship Tier X ship or a rare ship
K. Schönberg Rochester Fujin
FR25 San Diego Kamikaze
Huron Hampshire Kamikaze R
Toulon Tulsa Gremyashchy
Maya Carnot Black
Rio de Janeiro Dalian F. Sherman
Repulse Brandenburg Khabarovsk
Collingwood Anhalt Álvaro de Bazán
Novorossiysk Kearsarge Anchorage
Béarn Giuseppe Verdi Giulio Cesare
  Iwami Odin
  Hornet Hizen
  Aquila G. Kurfürst
  Chkalov Malta
  I-56  
  S-189

Rare drops now include G. Kufurst, imagine your rare drop is a GK, a previous tech tree ship.

Notable omissions: Puerto Rico, ZF-6, Marlborough.

edit: Can't change color of tabled text so I just removed it.

No no, imagine your rare pity drop is a GK. :P

Not mad at other inclusions, missed some of the ships on release, so maybe I can pick them up in santa crates.

I did the grinds and paid the doubloons for the Odin and the ZF-6.  
I wasn't feeling that thrilled about the Hizen during her dockyard event, so I passed on her.
Didn't feel like getting Puerto Rico, either back when she was first released as a dockyard ship or her recent reprise of the role.
Other ships have similar connections to dockyard events because they were the "reward ship" for completing a portion of a dockyard grind.

The Khabarovsk and the Grosser Kurfurst are no longer readily available since they were removed from the tech-tree [Edit:  and the armory] (artificial scarcity implemented by WG/WOWs).

Some ships are currently available, though (Iwami, Bearn, Kearsarge and etc.)

Edit:  Thanks to @Ensign_Cthulhu for pointing out my error.

I seem to be seeing everything in black.

That was their call.

Even though I have myself bought a number of ships with real money (see below) that later appeared for coal, as free event ships, or Black ship duplications (one way or another), I'm still not inclined to get angry about it. 

(viz: Warspite, Graf Spee, Anshan, Yubari, Gallant, Tachibana, Atago, Dunkerque, Sims.)

Somewhat misleading. The category is Tier 10 or rare.

You'd hardly expect them to put Puerto Rico in the crates when we've literally just finished her second-chance dockyard. I suspect they're putting the older Dockyard ships into the crates first and we'll probably see ZF-6, D7P and Marlborough next year. 

 

Dalian and Verdi going into the Tier 8-9 boxes is interesting, as these two ships have hitherto been available only for doubloons, and the potential is there to get them for cheap or free if you have a lot of Tier 10 ships and RNGesus is kind to you.

Good to see the return of the Kamikazes, Gremy and Giulio.

Are you certain about that? My reading of the following screenshot taken just today is "available but already got".

If anyone who doesn't have either GK or Khaba can show me a screenshot that demonstrates they're no longer there, I'll be quite happy to accept that result.

Was this list posted somewhere in a news article or was this just gleaned from coding or something?

Okay.  So, "correction" time.  I'll have to ammend my post, too.
Thanks for pointing this out @Ensign_Cthulhu:-)

Well, it was their own choice.

The suppository of consequence rarely arrives lubed.

I think the older dockyard ships are good additions to the "Rare" section.   Except for Hizen all those dockyard ships were before I started playing the game.  The chances of getting a rare ship is very very small, but it at least it is a chance.

It's a nice change. I  have the Odin and a bunch of the other yard ships, and there is nothing wrong with other players getting the ships they want.
