Strike Fleet is a 1987 computer game developed by LucasArts and published by Electronic Arts. It was released for the Amiga, Apple II, Atari ST, Commodore 64, and DOS. Strike Fleet is the unofficial sequel to the war game PHM: Pegasus.

The player controls either the American or British Fleets over the course of ten scenarios, of which the last four can be played as a single campaign. The player must fight against the navy and air force of various other nations including Argentina, the Soviet Union, and Iran.

A review in Computer Gaming World described the game as a marked improvement over PHM: Pegasus due to the added excitement and variety, while still maintaining the graphics and historical accuracy of that game. Minor complaints were directed at some UI decisions regarding the bridge interface and weapons systems.

The game was reviewed in 1988 in Dragon #134 by Hartley, Patricia, and Kirk Lesser in "The Role of Computers" column. The reviewers gave the game 5 out of 5 stars.
