Brazil Commissions Its First Scorpène Type Submarine: Launched in December 2018, the Riachuelo - Scorpène class conventional attack submarines (SSK) - successfully completed her sea trials and has now been delivered and entered into service within the Brazilian Navy. Compared to previous Scorpene class submarines, the S-BR features a stretched hull section to provide more submerged endurance. Extremely stealthy and fast, it has a level of operating automation that allows a limited number of crew, which reduces its operating costs significantly. Its combat edge is highlighted by the fact that it has 6 weapon launching tubes, 18 weapons (torpedoes, missiles).​

Equipped with Rafael Litening III laser designator pods, the AMXs used conventional BAFG-230 bombs (248kg) mounted on Rafael Lizard II laser guidance kits. Combined with the ability to penetrate at low altitude in enemy territory with great range and survivability in a hostile environment, the AMX-M (A-1M) represents an important strategic and deterrent vector for Brazil.

Can the AMX carry more than 4 bombs? Do they use triple or at least multiple ejectors on those??

The Brazilian variants have 2 x 30mm cannon plus 2 wingtip AAM points plus 5 hardpoints for stores with a max loadout of 3,800 kg. They are able to use multiple ejectors but I've never seen them with that loadout mate (Y)
