It didnt glass the planet in that time but it crisscrossed the planet glassing towns before they took it down. It was then that a CCS Cruiser came and picked up the brutes, proceeded to glass the planet. Destroying three ships that came to take it down
The source on the internet says otherwise. I even gave you a link.

Would it? If it was down to say to say, there would be a lot of things going on.
Prophet of Truth wrote:Game mechanics are also a poor way to score as the level of the games difficulty increases the powr of shields....hardly a statement of physics. in the book the ability to blow through shields is easier then that of a goa'uld personal shield, but not as easly as tossing a grenade at it.
Never the less it is possible and a unit of jaffa with staff weapons are not just a grenade.

Jolly good to hear.
