So, i put on a Super Heavy Spall Liner onto my WT E100, and the HE damage is literally the same as it was before i put the equipment on. I thought this was supposed to reduce HE damage to me by 50% is this a bug, or working as intended?

 

Can someone please explain how this is supposed to work.

Spall liner adds HE protection to Armor, so the Big Gun is not Armor its paper so it does not get the 50% reduction, The chassis will get 50% redcued.

The spall liner only protects you (slightly) from non-penetrating HE shells.  Since no one bounces HE on the waffle, you will get no benefit from it.

^ and your turret is wet tissue paper. Even a fail-platooned MS-1 could penetrate it with HE.

Waffle = Instant pen from HE. Spall liner has no effect on Penetrating shots.

 

TLDR: Spall liner won't help paper.

The spall liner only helps you against non-penetrating HE shells.  It is essentially a liner that protects the crew from flying shards of metal as the inside of your tank deforms and splinters due to the explosion on the outside.  Think of it like this: if a high explosive shell completely blasts through your armor, a liner isn't going to do much good.  If the shell just dings your armor, a liner will reduce the velocity of any shards of metal splintering off the inside walls of your tank.

 

Since the WT E-100 has like 20mm of armor at best, pretty much any HE round fired at the turret will still completely penetrate.  Where the spall liner will help your WT is if an arty shell misses the turret and either direct hits the hull or lands next to you.

Spaul Liner is useless on 99% of all tanks unless U like to RAM.  I have 392 Kamikaze Medals, top 10 on NA Server, and its only noticable affect is greatly reducing damage to ur tank and increasing it on enemy for ramming.
