This is coolbert:

I had forgotten about this one. Still in the inventory a much improved version.

ASROC. Anti-submarine rocket.

Add this missile to the arsenal ship VLS. Arsenal ship with an embedded anti-submarine warfare capability. VLS system [Vertical Launch] task-tailored weaponry formidable!

"The RUM-139 VL-ASROC is an anti-submarine missile in the ASROC family, currently built by Lockheed Martin for the U.S. Navy."

"Design and development of the missile began in 1983 when Goodyear Aerospace was contracted by the U.S. Navy to develop a ship-launched anti-submarine missile compatible with the new Mark 41 Vertical Launching System."

"The first VLS ASROC missile was an RUR-5 ASROC with an upgraded solid-fuel booster section and a digital guidance system. It carries a lightweight Mark 46 homing torpedo that is dropped from the rocket at a pre-calculated point on its trajectory, and then parachuted into the sea."
