This is a clip-in bomb cradle for a B-52 bomber. One B43 weapon is yet to be loaded into the clip. The bomb rack (silver, in center of picture) will hold the weapon at a forty-five degree angle when it is loaded. A set of braces, once tightened, will hold the weapon securely. They will be installed when the weapon is loaded into the cradle (you can see the front brace pads between the two weapons on the opposite side of the clip). Notice how the lower rack and braces swings down so the the upper weapon will have a clear drop from its rack.
