Volume is increased, and stress is more evenly distributed across the skin surfaces.   Flat plates are much easier to bend or dent than the compound curved shape of the sphere

Many moons ago I was in military demolition school.  Our mission as Coast Guardsmen was mostly to disarm enemy devices such as torpedos and mines. We were also instructed in some of the methods of espionage. We tinkered with what was then called "shape charges".  Imagine a sheet metal cone about the size of a souffle cup.  Fill the cone with a suitable explosive such as Composition C.  When fired the little device would make a neat round hole in steel plate.  Other shapes of sheet metal containers could make different sizes and shapes of holes.
