An anti-submarine missile is a standoff anti-submarine weapon. They include a missile or rocket designed to rapidly deliver an explosive warhead or homing torpedo, from the launch platform to the vicinity of a submarine.
Depth charges were the earliest weapons designed for use by ships against submerged submarines. These explosives were initially dropped as the ship moved over the presumed location of a submarine. Before World War II, shipboard sonar was unable to maintain contact with a submarine at close range.
