I was under the impression that a longer gun would give the shell more time to accellerate to have more penetration. Am i wrong?

Dafuq? Usually the guns with shorter barrels do MORE damage with LESS penetration! The longest barrel is probably the Panther, which is a high pen, extremely accurate weapon. 

The KV-2, on the other hand, has a short barrel with LESS penetration and MORE damage, and zero accuracy whatsoever.

 

Yes, there are exceptions, such as the Jpanther II, which has a short barrel, but fantastic penetration and decent accuracy.

even that exception isnt that great the barrel isnt even that short. Its a 128 l/55 which means 55 * the caliber of the gun. 128 x 55 =  7.04m long barrel 

 

Correct me if im wrong
