If I would like to
mount the ship with Anti-aircraft guns, all other ammo go unusable. I can
dynamically swap between available ammo.


Those are contradictory.

I suspect that last one is what you actually want.

So you have
1. Collection of ammunitions types
2. A pointer that specifies the active type.

1 can be implemented either as multiple classes or a single class with an attribute that specifies type.

The ship, at any time, can have a collection that has zero or more types available. However it might also be convenient to fix the collection size and just let the ammunication counts go to zero to indicate 'none'. Or have a flag that indicates something like 'not yet available'. The later allows it to collected but not usable until some game action occurs.
