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 : 

Unguided Rockets

 Unguided Rockets

While some may have believed in the late fifties and up to the early sixties that the FFAR was some sort of "ultimate air-to-air weapons", it was far from being so.  Retrospectively, thinking that part of the aerial defence of the United States relied on that kind of equipment, must have given nightmares to many....  The so called Battle of Palmdale illustrates the limitations of this weapon in its initially intended use, and a couple of Articles regarding this event are reproduced.

In AAC, unguided rockets are essentially of two types : 
 FFAR  (Folding Fin Aerial Rockets), either in pods or carried internally.  In the context of the game, FFAR are all APEI (armour piercing, explosive, incendiary)
 HVAR (High Velocity Aerial Rockets) launched from "zero length" launchers - an arbitrary selection among these weapons.

FFAR
 37mm French small lightweight rockets essentially intended for light training aircrafts - will be arbitrarily available to Warsaw Pact customers (S4)
 Effective range is arbitrarily set as 2000 metres
 50mm Stands for both the Oerlikon 50mm and the US T214 2" rocket - used both in launchers and as an inboard weapon (N-30A Sperber)
 Effective range is arbitrarily set as 4000 metres
 51mm Specific type used by the Royal Navy (actually 2 inch), used both in rocket launchers and as an inboard weapon (Sea Vixen FAW1)
 Effective range is arbitrarily set as 4000 metres
 55mm Standard rocket type for the USSR
 Effective range is arbitrarily set as 4000 metres
 68mm The French rocket is used both in rocket launchers and as an inboard weapon (Dassault Mystere IV)
 Effective range is arbitrarily set as 4000 metres
 70mm The 2.75" US Mk40 is also used as inboard weapon (FFAR) - multiple launchers are fantasy items based on real life ones
 Effective range is arbitrarily set as 6000 metres
HVAR
 3" US WWII era early rocket
 -
 RP-3 Standard British aerial rocket
 Used exclusively by some operators, but available to others (except the Warsaw Pact)
 5" Standard US aerial rocket
 - 
 T10 Defined to represent the French 100mm T10 rocket, equipped with a 120mm warhead (thus the actual T10/T151)
 Lack of available data lead to arbitrary performances
 135mm Defined to represent the Swedish Bofors 135mm aerial rocket - Lack of available data lead to arbitrary performances
 Used exclusively by some operators, and not available to others
 132mm Defined to represent the RS132 Soviet rocket
 Lack of available data lead to arbitrary performances (beefed up to equal the various rockets above)

In addition to the above, one "miscellaneous" weapon is assimilated to the same range of weapons : the anti-tank rocket (ATR) which comes in two forms - See Miscellaneous Weapons for historical details

ATR
 40mm It's the RPG-7 40mm grenade which may be slung under the wing of light aircraft, namely the Yak12
 90mm It's the M20 rocket launched by what actually is bazooka.  Either hung under the L18C or L19E light aircrafts

Some of the launchers below are fantasy ones created for the benefit of the game.  For example, the Warsaw Pact thus never had 37mm rockets on inventory.   However, while the JK200 combining fuel, bombs and rockets is fictional, the JL100 was very real and widely exported.  These combined items are also mentioned under Miscellaneous Weapons (with more detailed illustrations) and under Fuel Tanks.

While the 70mm FFAR was essentially an internal weapon by the mid-sixties, this rocket type is also handled in AAC in specific dispensers although these were actually produced at a later date.   The five launchers are respectively inspired by the Brazilian Equipaer EQ-MRL-32-70/7-12, the OrdTech OMI-LAU-275-12, the Equipaer EQ-MRL-32-70/19-13, and the Matra MTF1, while the SUU20A training dispenser was inspired by the Ordtech SUU-20B/A.   This particular combined is further described and illustrated in
Miscellaneous Weapons.
