was it just me was the A-10's cannon sounded totally wrong?
The rate of fire and sound almost felt like some kinda 50cal machine gun.

even on a low speed setting it will still be spewing 30+ rounds a second, it would just be a constant stream of buzzing noise and it would be all over.

I know, alternate universe, wrath time dilation field, magnets.: jack:

Other than that, great episode! Definitely one of the best earth-based episode in SG universe so far. Could use that stylized camerawork/editing once in a while.

The sounds the gun made sounded like a M-60 Machine Gun. That was a great episode and a great season and a great show.

As someone who has personally heard a A-10's "Cannon" I can say that was the sound of it. It's a 30mm BTW.

The A-10's used to fly over our positions all the time.
