What does a spall liner even do? If you were to believe the tooltip this hit would have done ~900 damage without the spall liner, which seems unlikely.

 

This piece of equipment needs some serious changes. I'm giving up an equipment slot for... for what exactly?

Nothing.

You should know that, spall liner does not help in case of penetrating shots.

 

Generally speaking spall line increases the armor vs HE splash (detonation).

When the affected armor is thick, ie.: 150mm or thicker the effect is bigger.

When the effected armor is thin ie. 40mm or so, roof top of the engine, the effect is minimal.

It clearly says "adds 30% more armor". It won't reduce the damage by 30%.

 

So it's effective if the SPG hits where your armor is strong and thick from before. As then if it's thick enough. Those 30% might even negate all the damage as the shell can't dig in far enough.

 

If he hits the right spot, as in a place where the HE can dig in a bit more even with 30% more armor. It can still do plenty of damage. But on places like on the engine deck, 30% of nothing is still nothing. And even then he still might have enough HE pen to get past it. It won't reduce anything if he fully pens. So basically the less armor on the point of impact there is. The less effective those 30% will be.
