Binos and Camo net are useful, also gun rammer. 

Then repair kit, first aid and fire extinguisher. 

I haven't bothered with tool box. Couple of hits and you are dead anyway, so, hide, hit and move.

Camonet, binos and rammer. Camonet to not get spotted, binos so you can out spot your opponents and help your team out with viewrange, rammer because your reload isn't great and that little bit extra can help a lot.

I think I'm using rammer, GLD and binos at the moment. The rammer is because more shooting is never a bad thing, binos mean that I can spot my own targets, or in a pinch I can spot for the team whilst kemping bush. I used to use a camo net, but now my crew are camo trained I switched to GLD for a better aim time. I'm moving away from camo nets on most of my tanks now, they get used on tanks I don't plan on keeping and sneaky snipers when the crews aren't great.

Rammer, Net and Binocs, every day... If you have some spare funds, Camo paint will help a wee bit too - every little helps!

Unlike SirDixie, I tend to keep the net on AS WELL as camo traing my crews - It is my understanding that the benefits stack, and I'm all there for every tiny advatage, and as my stats wil reveal, I need all the help I can get :bush::D

Forget anything like that, its an open top TD with wet paper armour and tiny HP so when you start to get shot it's pretty much over, especially combined with the fact the HC literally can't reverse to save it's life, now you can rear face the enemy to nullify that a little and drive away instead of reversing but then you lose your gun dep so.. equipment it's all about seeing but not getting seen with these lower tier open tops. So as mentioned and this is also the layout I roll with, Binocs to see first, camo net to be seen last, and gun rammer.. gun rammer is default choice for almost every tank in the game that can take one but it's especially important on the HC with it's horrible DPM on the 90mm, even with the rammer it's still noticeably poor at laying shells down field. 

 

One more alternative I would seriously consider is gun laying drive to improve hitting your targets. You could drop camo net for a GLD since the HC already has outstanding camo values when crew is 100% camo and camo paint so you could do fine without a camo net along with the fact I notice the gun handling and aim time on the 90mm is garbage. It says aim time is 1.8 or something which is really really good but that's total bull. From stopping the tank to fully aiming is more like 3 seconds imo and it blooms and throws wide surprisingly often when tracking your target with just the turret so the GLD is something I have considered for a while.

Don`t forget to train 6th sense on your commmander, cammo skill on the other crew members, and perhaps even brothers in arms to all crew members as a second skill.
