Huanghe - why so cheap?

Puzzled as to why the Huanghe is, roughly, 1/3rd of the price of other T6 cruisers?

 

I have her (xmass box 2017) and she is a fun little ship to play (not many games in her yet though) and is in the upper half of the performance values for her tier, so why the 66% discount, weird.

My guess is that not enough people bought her and they wanted to increase revenue.

It's the T6 cruiser with second least amount of battles (just beating the Nürnberg-clone Admiral Makarov). Unless a CV is around, Huanghe is worse than Perth and even with CV around, it's just her base AA that is high, no defAA to farm plane kills. Obviously, being worse than one of the best T6 cruisers isn't exactly that bad, but both of them are notably harder to play than tech tree ships to get the most out of them and the people who do like to excel in these ships often just go for Perth instead. Not to mention, it needs a 14 pt captain. Might be the ship gets some appreciation when Irian hits and you can create an IFHE CL captain for two cruisers, but currently, it just seems like a hassle. 

 

Likely as a result, they made Huanghe one of those cheap prems, like Yuubari and Texas.
