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-Surface Missiles

 

By the mi-sixties not many weapons of the type were available and were usually radio guided by the pilot of the launch aircraft, although the Saab Rb04 was a notable exception as this antishipping missile was radar guided but would lock on the infra red signature of its target in the last phase of flight.   The Soviet AS-1 Kenal might be considered an exception too as it was radar guided and would home on its (naval) target using its own on obard radar but this "missile" was actually the size of a Mig15 fighter aircraft and was a "single type" weapon (Tu16 Badger bombers in their anti-shipping role).

For the purpose of the game, all missiles locks on their target either acquiring infrared or radar signature of their target and are of the "fire & forget" type.   Another cheat factor implemented in the game is the use of both the AGM45 Shrike (in a simple air-to-ground format) and the AS-7 Kerry air-to-ground missiles.   In real life, the Shrike was exclusively an anti-radar weapon, and the AS-7 Kerry only deployed in 1968, both however are incorporated here to offer the gamer some additional options, and especially to those wishing to fly from the Soviet side some AGM to play with.

Sub-type : Anti Radar missiles

Essentially a missile homing on the radiation of the ennemy radar it's supposed to destroy.  By the early sixties, only the Americal AGM-45 Shrike was operational.  Therefore, a HR (homing to radar) version of the AS-7 Kerry has been added to the Soviet inventory, with a lighter warhead and a longer range.

For the purpose of the game, this kind of missile would home on any kind of radar, whether located on land, on a ship or ... aboard another aircraft
