    Default A-10 rate of fire

    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.
    Spins and turns, angles and curves, the shape of dreams half remembered. Slip the surly bonds of Earth and touch the face of perfection. A perfect face, a perfect lace, find a perfect world for the end of Kara Thrace.
    End of line.

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