AGM-12 Bullpup


The AGM-12, nicknamed Bullpup, is a guided short-range air-to-ground missile that can be steered manually by the crew.

Steering commands are send via radio by utilizing the lower UHF antenna of the Phantom.

It was the first of its kind that reached series production and was used in service during the early 1960s until it was later supplanted by the AGM-62 Walleye.


Available variants include:

A250 lbsolid-fuel
B250 lbliquid fuel, extended range
C1000 lbliquid fuel, further extended range
