The Asiatic Fleet was part of the US Navy. During the World War II era, the fleet was tasked with protecting the Philippines.
Originally the Asiatic Squadron, it was upgraded to fleet status in 1902. In 1907, the fleet became the First Squadron of the Pacific Fleet. However, on 28 January 1910, the ships of that squadron were again organized as the Asiatic Fleet.
