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 : 

Bombs

 Bombs

The main range of conventional bombs originates from WWII - the US AN-M serie - with a couple of additions like the French lightweight SC61 bomb intended for the Fouga Magister.   For AAC purposes, the AN-M serie is simply copied into Soviet arsenal.  This dual range of weapons with used as follows : 
 bombs carried internally in a bomb bay
 bombs carried externally by any aircraft

 

The advent of fast jets lead to the design of streamlined bombs which in AAC will be an option (weapons to be purchased).   These weapons are made of the US Mk80 Series and the equivalent Russian M62 Series outlined here.   This dual range of weapons with used as follows : 
 bombs carried externally by any aircraft

 

So while France and UK produced their own range of bombs, US types will be the standard for the "Western" countries.   The same will apply to other kinds of bombs with the exception of nuclear bombs where the British and French variants are sufficiently documented.

 

Finally, while the actual weight of conventional bombs differs from their nominal denomination (eg: the US M64 actually weights 534 lbs), total weight here is usually expressed nominally with a nominal equivalent in either kgs or lbs while the quantity of explosives refers to actual figures

 Only a selection of the various nuclear weapons which existed at the time are listed below, although this list should be identifying the main ones.   Both Sweden and Switzerland had projected to develop a nuclear arsenal, a development put to halt in 1967 and 1988 respectively.   for the purpose of the game, it is here imagined these programmes were coordinated and gave birth to real weapons thus available in the WAPA arsenal.
