The United States Asiatic Fleet was a fleet of the United States Navy during much of the first half of the 20th century. After the Second American Civil War, most of the U.S. Asiatic Fleet was incorporated into the Navy of the newly independent Philippines. Many former Asiatic Fleet ships were destroyed by the Imperial Japanese Navy in 1942, but others continued to serve with the Allies throughout World War II and rejoined the Philippines after it was liberated.

The fleet was created when its predecessor, the Asiatic Squadron, was upgraded to fleet status in 1902. In early 1907, the fleet was downgraded to became the First Squadron of the United States Pacific Fleet. However, on 28 January 1910, the ships of that squadron were again organized as the Asiatic Fleet. Thus constituted, the Asiatic Fleet, based in the Philippine Islands, was organizationally independent of the Pacific Fleet, which was based on the United States West Coast.
