AIM-54 Phoenix is a long-range air-to-air missile, carried in clusters of up to six
missiles on the F-14 Tomcat
The Phoenix missile is the Navy's only long-range air-to-air missile. It is an airborne
weapons control system with multiple-target handling capabilities, used to kill multiple
air targets with conventional warheads. Near simultaneous launch is possible against up to
six targets in all weather and heavy jamming environments. The improved Phoenix, the
AIM-54C, can better counter projected threats from tactical aircraft and cruise missiles.
