All the JASSM variants are AGM-158. The C model is the LRASM.

That's correct. The LRASM is very similar to the JAASM (AGM-158A) and JASM-ER (AGM-158B). -SP

Except you didn't say "LRASM". Was wondering what this 3rd variant of "JASSM" was.

Not surprising other than I didn't think LRASM was considered mature enough to get an official designation. It's still a DARPA program after all.

Yeah, it was probably nit-picking. (I was pretty sure what you meant but you never know. Maybe it was some other variant revealed or something.)

Here's the release in part from USN site:
Contacted by Navy Recognition, a Lockheed Martin spokesperson said "we learned over the weekend that LRASM's official designation will be AGM-158C". AGM-158C is the designation for the air-launched LRASM missile only. There is no surface-launch LRASM program of record yet. The Department of the Navy, Naval Air Warfare Center, gave the official designation.
