    The B-52H is a Mini Buff and was not designed to carry conventional ordnance. This being said, it is the only B-52 left in inventory and not many at that. None of the B-52s were designed to carry conventional ordnance as according to SAC, Nuclear was the new conventional as far as SAC was concerned. If you want conventional ordnance call TAC. The B-52F was the first to be used in a conventional role in Vietnam and as with all B-52's could carry but 27 (if I really correctly) in the weapons bay and with the modified pylons another 24 on the wings for a load of 51. The B-52D (I worked on the D, G, and a couple of H's) was modified to carry conventional loads to include up to 84 internal Mk 82 500 lb bombs in three "Clips" and another 24 Mk 82 or Mk 117 (750) on the wings giving it the capacity of 108 weapons. The G and H's were kept in the primary nuclear roll and could carry up to 8 internal (depending on weapon for mission could be only one) and two hound doges on the wings. The H models re going through a mod to update their conventional load out now as with time they have greatly increased capability to deliver JDAM and Laser guided weapons and are now capable of delivering almost everything in the inventory. That being said, they are still primary SIOP mission aircraft and the conventional primary has passed to the B-1B. While the Buff is still used for the long loiter and delivery capability's. the Bone is the heavy deliver platform for now as the Global Strike Command (Mini SAC) (Oh yeah I am retired SAC, can you tell?) has primary on the B-2 and B-52 for the nuclear job.
