The United States Navy Gato-class submarine design was the forerunner of all US World War II submarine designs. Named after the first vessel of this design, USS Gato (SS-212), the Gato-class and its successors, Balao and Tench, formed the majority of the United States Navy's WWII submarine fleet. Gato's name comes from a species of small catshark. Like other U.S. Navy submarines of the period, the Gato-class were all given the names of fish.
