Among the Phantom II's lethal armament are the AGM-65 Maverick and AGM-45 Shrike missiles, each playing a distinct role in the aircraft's capacity to engage ground targets and neutralize enemy threats.

The AGM-65 Maverick, a precision-guided air-to-ground missile, uses its versatile guidance systems, including electro-optical and infrared seekers, to allow pilots to engage a variety of ground-based threats.

The AGM-45 Shrike missile takes on a specialized role in Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses (SEAD). Designed to seek out and neutralize enemy radar installations, the Shrike is an anti-radiation missile that targets radar-emitting threats.
