That's not a very good design.

As the Vulcan fires, you get reaction on only one side -- the gun pod is
going to either throw to the left or force the head to turn
counterclockwise. This can be offset somewhat by the ammo feeding in from
the opposite direction, but there's still going to be a
leftward/counterclockwise recoil.

Meanwhile, as you expend ammunition, the right pod becomes less massive
while the left pod stays the same, creating another imbalance.

Better to have a gun and ammo cassette in each pod and crossfeed the ammo,
so that the left cassette feeds the right gun and vice versa.
