USS Halfbeak (SS-352), a Balao-class submarine, was a ship of the United States Navy named for the halfbeak, a garlike fish with a beak formed by an extension of the lower jaw, found in warmer seas.
Halfbeak was decommissioned and simultaneously struck from the Naval Register, 1 July 1971. She was sold for scrapping, 13 July 1972.
The USS Halfbeak (SS352) was a sister-ship to the USS Ling and one of the last of the Balao Class to be built.
