For router #1, the PAs goes on the 7200, that can have a maximum of 6. You could use a 7613 to host more but is very expensive, so suggest you use 2 x 7200 with NPE-G1 instead.

However since V35 cables are very bulky suggest you discuss with telco to eliminate the DSU also called V36 modem and interface diretly with E1 to the circuits. This works also if the speens is less than 2 mbps.

All the others are ISR 28xx or 38xx depending on you budged. A reputable reseller can provide configuration "simulations" with prices attached for you to choose. It also depends by the software feature set.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
