During WWII, the Gato class & its successor, the Balao class, carried much of the burden of the submarine war in the Pacific. These new fleet submarines were successful boats that proved to be strong, fast, well armed, & well suited to the long range patrols needed to fight in the pacific..

These submarines waged war against the Axis powers, amassing a record of devastation & sheer killing power that was unmatched by any other land or sea assault platform.

These new fleet submarines enabled the Navy to shift its submarine doctrine from coastal defence to open ocean attacks on enemy warships & convoys critical to the enemy logistical support. This doctrine of forward presence & strike warfare by the submarine remains today.
