The '''Long-Range Air-to-Ship Missile''' (LASM) (in ''[[Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies]], [[Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War]]'' and [[Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy|''Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy'']] named  '''Long-Range Air-to-Surface Missile''') is a special weapon of the '''''[[Ace Combat (series)|Ace Combat]]''''' series. The missile is designed to destroy enemy ships at long range. The missile has high power and armor penetration, thus causing great damage to the selected target from inside. The missile has no area of destruction, therefore it is not suitable for killing groups of enemies.  In the ''[[Ace Combat: Assault Horizon]]'' game there is an association between the Long-Range Air-to-Ground Missile (LAGM) and  the Long-Range Air-to-Ship Missile (LASM) mixing them into a different type named LAGM, and as a result, the missile flies to the chosen target as an anti-ship missile, but has an area of destruction as the air-to-ground missile.

The '''Long-Range Air-to-Ship Missile''' (abbreviated as '''LASM'''; also known as the '''Long-Range Air-to-Surface Missile''' in ''[[Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies]]'', ''[[Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War]]'', and ''[[Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy]]'') is a special weapon featured in the ''[[Ace Combat]]'' series. The missile is designed to destroy enemy ships at long range. The missile has high power and armor penetration, thus causing great damage to the selected target from inside. The missile has no area of destruction, therefore it is not suitable for killing groups of enemies.  In the ''[[Ace Combat: Assault Horizon]]'' game, there is an association between the Long-Range Air-to-Ground Missile (LAGM) and  the Long-Range Air-to-Ship Missile (LASM) mixing them into a different type named LAGM, and as a result, the missile flies to the chosen target as an anti-ship missile, but has an area of destruction as the air-to-ground missile.

==Game Analysis==
The LASM is first introduced to the series in ''Shattered Skies''. The weapon carries enough splash damage to kill a warship or heavily grouped targets.

LASMs operate similarly to how they have in previous titles, flying to surface-skimming levels to engage enemy ships. They are a potent weapon in missions where there is a significant enemy naval presence, due to it's almost unique ability to destroy most warships with a single missile. However, it's blast radius is less potent than that of the [[Land Attack Cruise Missile|LACM]] and [[Long-Range Air-to-Ground Missile|LAGM]], and its flightpath allows it to be interrupted by terrain, two factors which make it less than desirable for ground targets.

The LASM returns in ''Ace Combat 6'', though the weapon has undergone a modification of sorts. If the target is land based, then the missile will act like the XAGM in which it flies and then dives towards its target. However, if it is a sea based target, it will immediately dive and skim towards the target until impact. It is the most powerful incarnation of the weapon due to its blast radius and usage.

The Long-Range Air-to-Ship Missile (abbreviated as LASM; also known as the Long-Range Air-to-Surface Missile in Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies, Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, and Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy) is a special weapon featured in the Ace Combat series. The missile is designed to destroy enemy ships at long range. The missile has high power and armor penetration, thus causing great damage to the selected target from inside. The missile has no area of destruction, therefore it is not suitable for killing groups of enemies.  In the Ace Combat: Assault Horizon game, there is an association between the Long-Range Air-to-Ground Missile (LAGM) and  the Long-Range Air-to-Ship Missile (LASM) mixing them into a different type named LAGM, and as a result, the missile flies to the chosen target as an anti-ship missile, but has an area of destruction as the air-to-ground missile.

Game AnalysisEdit

Ace Combat 7: Skies UnknownEdit

"Long-range air-to-surface missiles. They are mainly powerful against enemy fleets, so make sure you choose the right weapon in other situations."
Hangar

LASMs operate similarly to how they have in previous titles, flying to surface-skimming levels to engage enemy ships. They are a potent weapon in missions where there is a significant enemy naval presence, due to it's almost unique ability to destroy most warships with a single missile. However, it's blast radius is less potent than that of the LACM and LAGM, and its flightpath allows it to be interrupted by terrain, two factors which make it less than desirable for ground targets.

LASM Infinity Icon
"An air-to-ship missile that features both long range and high power.
Though not as large as a bomb, the blast after impact is still large, enveloping the vicinity of the target.
Although most effective against ship targets, it is also an effective air-to-ground weapon against ground targets at distance."

"Nearly matching the destructive power of a free-fall bomb, the LASM's blast radius is capable of damaging facilities beyond the main target area. Equipped with a powerful radar/seeker, the LASM is capable of destroying otherwise unapproachable targets such as ships and radar stations, from long range. There are several different guidance systems available."
