The Unguided Bomb (UGB), also known as the Unguided Bomb (Medium) (UGBM) in Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies, is a recurring bomb-type special weapon in the Ace Combat series. The bomb has a moderate blast radius, allowing players to damage or destroy a cluster of targets. It has no guidance, requiring the use of a pipper to manually drop the bomb over the intended targets.

The UGB was introduced in Ace Combat 04, and has appeared in nearly all Ace Combat games since. There are also two alternate sizes: the Unguided Bomb (Small) (UGBS) and Unguided Bomb (Large) (UGBL).

UGBs are usually modeled after the Mk.83 or FAB-500-M62. The Mirage 2000D uses the SAMP EU2 in Ace Combat 5 and Ace Combat Zero. In both Assault Horizon and Infinity, the UGB is modeled after the Mk.84, which was previously used as the UGBL in older games.

"The UGB is a fairly powerful bomb capable of damaging all targets within its blast radius. While technologically unsophisticated, a skilled hand can ensure its effectiveness against almost any ground target. The simplistic and reliable designs consists only of the main body and stabilizing fins. It is often chosen for ground offensives due to its simplicity and low cost."
