If you research a gun that is used on multiple platforms does that research carry to another vehicle, or does it have to be researched again?

Thanks

Researched equipment (guns/radios/etc), once researched carry over to all vehicles/tanks that use that item...

Just remember that it has to be the EXACT same part.  German tanks and TD's use lots of the same guns - for example the short 88mm L/56.  Once you unlock it on say, the VK3601, it's automatically unlocked for the VK3001H, VK3001P, Tiger H, Tiger P, VK3002DB, Panther and Panther II.

But you have to unlock the gun again for the Jagdpanzer IV, because despite being the same 88L/56 gun, the tanks use the 8.8cm KwK 36 L/56 (Kampfwagenkanone, or Tank Cannon), while the TD's use the 8.8cm PaK 36 L/56 (Panzerabwehrkanone, or Anti-Tank Cannon).

They are different in-game, the PaK 36 fires faster due to not being stuffed into a turret.  But some people get a bit confused since it seems like the same gun, so there you go.
