The missiles mounted on this F-102 are from the Hughes "Falcon" family of air-to-air missiles. In the weapons bay are AIM-4A radar guided missiles in the forward positions and AIM-4D infra-red guided missiles in the rear position. On the bottom center rail is an AIM-26A, a kiloton range nuclear warhead. Additional armament consists of 24 2.75-inch folding-fin unguided "Mighty Mouse" rockets, two in each of 12 tubes located inside the weapons bay doors. These rockets are partially visible at the forward ends of the doors. The weapons bays on both sides normally open together. To show both the open and closed configuration in this display, only the right side is fully open to firing position.
