Depending on aircraft type, weapons are carried internally and/or externally under wing and/or fuselage pylons with the number of weapons stations varying from one aircraft to the other.   To see the various weapons associated with a particular aircraft see : 

Air-to-Air Missiles

 Air-to-Air Missiles

The 1960s mark the start of the use or air-to-air missiles and while history showed that their performances were disapointing (a gross understatement) they became the standard air-to-air weapon.   In the context of this game, performances and relialability will be higher than they were in that time and two essential parameters are not consistent with the reality of the mid-sixties :
Target acquisition

In these early days some missiles were declined in two different versions : tipped with an infrared (IR) detector or with a radar receiver.   In the latter case, the "radar guided missiles" actually were beam riders (BR) with only the Sparrow having an active radar (AR) capacity when in close proximity of its target.

Several missiles only existed in one version (i.e. either radar or infra-red) - this specificity is respected but : 
-

some radar guided missiles will have an "active homing" (AR) rather than "beam reading" seaker, making them "fire & forget" (F&F) weapons - thus a cheat AAC weapon

-

infrared guided missiles do not have a head-on capacity, restricting them to real world "tail shooting"

Standard weapon

In the game, the American AIM-9 Sidewinder and the Soviet AA-2 Atoll are "standard" weapons available to most if not all types of aircrafts in IR mode and to specific aircrafts in BR mode.   While making the IR version an almost universal missile is departure from the reality, in practice wiring up an aircraft to carry such missiles relying on the missile's seeker for detection and acquisition of targets (thus at short range) rests within reasonable feasibility.
