A Nice Place to Visit - S1-E14

Factual error: When the team is in uniform for their friend's funeral, Smith and Peck (both commissioned officers) have their Special Forces insignias on their berets when they should have their rank insignia.

Mister Ed

West Coast Turnaround - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: During the scene when the A-Team drops watermelons on the pickup truck, the windshield shatters. The next shot after this, the truck flips over, but the windshield is intact.

Mexican Slayride (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the team is escaping with Al, BA swipes a truck. After loading everyone in, he puts a pin in to hold the gate on the driver's side. When they meet up with Face & Murdock at the helicopter, Hannibal jumps out, pulls one pin from the passenger's side, and the gate swings down.

The Rabbit Who Ate Las Vegas - S1-E7

Other mistake: When the two women first see the bus pull up and get on, the next scene we see when it picks up BA is the same video footage as when it arrived to pick them up. You can also see the same pink neon lights in the reflection of the bus and bus stop before it quickly cuts away. (00:02:50 - 00:04:20)

One More Time - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: As the bolt flies toward the fuel can, you can see the pre-cut spot where it will hit. Then as it hits the canister changes completely as the dark strip where the bolt hits disappears. (00:41:40)

Movie Nut

West Coast Turnaround - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: The chain for the air horn is being pulled by Hannibal's right hand. Suggesting it's mounted over the driver's right side, in the middle of the cab. A second later, the chain is seen swinging at the top right of the shot on Hannibal. (00:20:15)

Movie Nut

Face: In no time, he'll be running around like a Mexican Jack Rabbit. One that just got out of therapy.

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.
