Boeing B-52 Stratofortress

That’s a G model in the pic. It was not modified to hold a Common Strategic Rotary Launcher in the bomb bay like the H models were, so it could only carry 12 ALCMs under its wings. The SIOP mission G models would carry SRAMs or gravity weapons (B83 or B61) in the weapons bay.

Fun fact: Not all G models were able to carry ALCMs. The cruise missile capable G models had their wing failings smoothed out to make those airframes distinguishable in satellite photos to meet treaty requirements. All the H models were cruise missile capable including the internal CSRL for a total of 20 ALCMs, but due to their different engine pods they were already distinguishable in sat photos. It gives a good idea of the resolution of late soviet era recon satellites.
