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 named  Long-Range Air-to-Surface Missile) is a special weapon of 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.

Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies

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.

Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War

Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War

Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception

The LASM are usable weapons again in Ace Combat X. Their performance is similar to 5 and Zero's LASMs. The LASM is presented as a Russian air-to surface missile Kh-29T (X-29T, AS-14 Kedge).

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation

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.

Ace Combat: Joint Assault

The LASM is usable weapon again in Joint Assault. Its performance is similar to that of Skies of Deception.
