It would need to be a very thick wing to support not only the weapons, but the weapons bay door controls, weapons racks and associated hydraulics and electrics etc.

A thick wing is fine for transports and maybe large subsonic bombers, but doesn't lend itself very well to supersonic flight or high g manoeuvering. Wider fuselages with their own lifting characteristics (a la YF-23) are more technically feasible.
