IIRC it could carry up to 14 (as could the Poseidon).

I didn't know there was another edition of U.S. Nuclear Weapons. Is it worth the expense? (I bought mine in a bookstore for $30 when it first came out, but I'm told they sell for 10x that amount nowadays). Thank you.

This might help. Looks like it's only got every other spot full. (It's a C-4 bus but you get the idea.)

(I've seen a drawing of the loadout before but for the life of me I can't find it.)
 
I thought that way...of course this one is not Trident's bus, but idea is clear
