Trouble on Wheels - S3-E7

Other mistake: As the team is chasing the thug's truck, they toss explosives at it. The charges miss on either side, but the truck is hit anyway. As the truck comes to a rest on its side you can see that there is no engine in it. Also, as the team stops at the truck, the head thugs come out from behind the truck and try to run. They didn't have enough time to get out, let alone get ready to run.

Trouble on Wheels - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: As the team is driving through the warehouse, they are shooting up the place. The time that the car can get from one side of the space inside to the other at their speed is about three seconds. Unless they were driving in circles, they stopped inside to shoot people with oil squirting hoses, shoot up and wreck the place and get going. Even though the sound said they were moving, the physics say otherwise.

Trouble on Wheels - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: While driving in and through the bad guy's warehouse, Murdock is driving and firing the gun on the driver's side. As the camera does a close up on him driving, you can see it is a reused shot of him driving outside, as you can see not only trees, but BA's relaxed arms behind him. Trouble there is that BA is firing the top mounted gun. Also, after the close up of Murdock, you see his left hand on the wheel. When the camera cuts to the driver's gun, his left hand is suddenly firing it, and behind that, you that the background isn't moving.

Answer: Mostly M-14's. Occaisionally M-16's or Ingram Model 10's. http://world.guns.ru/smg/smg00-e.htm

Grumpy Scot

Answer: They never use an M14. The nearly always use a Ruger Mini 14, a totally different weapon.

Answer: The machine guns primarily used were M60's or M60D's. Although there were a lot of sub-machine guns used too, like the Mac-10. For some reason other answers are talking about rifles used in the show.

Bishop73

For the reason is because most people don't know the difference between an automatic rifle, a sub-machine gun, and a machine gun. I.e. Die Hard "Ho-ho-ho now we have a machine gun" - actually a HK MP5K. M60D's are for helicopter door gunners. I suspect you mean an M60E3, with the pistol foregrip.

stiiggy

You suspect wrong. I did mean M60D since they were seen being used as helicopter door guns.

Bishop73

Only in the stock footage in the intro though.

lionhead

Yes, because the question was asking what machine guns were used, but didn't cite a specific episode or anything, so I was being thorough.

Bishop73

The question is what machine guns were used by the A-team. Not that one.

lionhead

So you think the question was what machine gun was used by the A-Team but not by the A-Team?

Bishop73

No. The A-Team never used the M60D anywhere in the series, you only see it in the stock footage of the intro. And the question was what machine guns the A-team used.

lionhead

Which is stock footage of the A-Team.

Bishop73

That is most definitely not the A-team in the helicopter, they are just showing footage from the Vietnam war.
