I run the SH spall liner on the Tortoise to protect the crew - not that it's very effective at it. I run it on my Tier III freemiums because it's cheap, why not, and also RAMMING SPEED. I put a spall liner on the Charioteer, turns out, but that was long after I stopped playing the vehicle and its crew was since moved to the 183.
My Waffle also has a SH spall liner, for basically the same reason as the Tortoise - crew protection (not that it's the crew who are dying the most, hmm).
Plus, HE fire will often hid the heavily-armoured hull, or the gun rather than the thin turret superstructure. Since these are functionally splash damage only against your very thin superstructure, every little helps.
Plus, the Waffle can kill a dying IS-7 by a low-speed bump. It weighs 100 tonnes, RAMMING SPEED

If you see me performing really badly on the EU server, it's because I've got three kittens fighting for my attention. I'm really sorry.
