Due to their size and equipment they could remain in non-stop service for 75 days. Between 1940 and 1944, 77 Gatos were build at four different shipyards. Together with the Balao and the Trench Class they formed the backbone of the US submarine fleet. Most of these subs went to the Pacific, but a few were also used in the Atlantic.
