I'd say that you can, unless the Stress caused by the Wound moved your pilot to Unfit, in which case all your weapons are removed, as I understand it.

But if your Stress stays in normal/shaken, I see nothing in the Wounded rule to say you lose weapons.

Being wounded does prevent you from attacking anymore on the
current map right?, or just for the 1 turn after you are wounded?

I always moved these planes to the edge to go home thinking they were done fighting...

The printed rules for TAL don't say to remove weapons, only that a wounded pilot cannot attack. Phantom Leader and TAL say you remove counters when a pilot becomes unfit, but becoming wounded doesn't make you unfit, or at least not necessarily.

But I think the spirit of "cannot attack" would include being unable to expend weapons to help with an event card or SAR. Flying an attack is tough enough when you're not wounded, and in any case the rest of the squadron would be focused on getting the wounded guy home, not asking him to bring Hellfires to bear.
