The Weapon Cards are special weapons introduced in Otomedius which you can get them from defeat enemies and expand your weaponry besides from the basic armament of each RV.

Basically, they're in each difficulty level, and repeating the first three loops (and sometimes four or five) you can get all the Weapon Cards. For getting a card you must complete the actual stage until the result screens displayed. If the game is over, the collected Weapon Card is lost until become to find it again and complete the stage.
