How should I understand the もな? I know な is an end particle for seeking agreement. But what is the も? Is anything omitted after もな?

This も is for indicating the marked number is large; "no fewer than" or "as many as". Nothing is omitted in this sentence, but the verb that normally comes after the も is found at the beginning of the sentence (倒置/anastrophe). In the normal word order, the sentence in question is:

ああ、(どっかの戦隊長が毎っ回毎っ回機体ぶっ壊すせいで置いてある→)予備が二機も有るなぁ

Indeed, there are (not one but) TWO spares (←I keep coz some commander I know destroys his unit every single time)!

(どっかの戦隊長 is indirectly referring to "you".)
