Help.png This article, International cruisers, is currently under active construction.

Numerous countries designed and built space cruisers in the decades prior to the Interplanetary Conflict, and operated those cruisers under the loose oversight of the United Nations Space Authority.

Overview

From 2103 to 2166, member states of the United Nations sponsored the design and construction of space cruisers which were commissioned into the UNSA space fleet. Cruisers were seen as symbols of considerable prestige as well as effective instruments to better enforce the will of the UN.

[Source]

The first super-heavy cruiser was commissioned in 2157, after a lengthy construction and trials period of seven years. Major delays and changes in design had sapped the flagship of its potential for political repercussions; nevertheless, the Charlemagne presented a threatening profile with capabilities unmatched by any then-commissioned cruiser. Charlemagne was the effective flagship of the United Nations Space Authority from 2157 to 2164, including leading a UNSA fleet to Mars in 2163. The UNSC Charlemagne was finally retired from service in 2311.

Light cruisers

UNSC Achievement

The oldest of the International cruisers, the Achievement had been commissioned in 2103 as the first space cruiser of the United Nations Space Authority. Built primarily by Chinese corporations, the Achievement underwent significant upgrades in the 2140s and 2150s to keep the cruiser's speed and armament comparable to its contemporaries. Nevertheless, by 2166 the aging light cruiser had been relegated to the Earth defense fleet, mostly for use as a training ship. Achievement officially became a cadet training cruiser in 2171 and remained as such for the next twenty years before ultimately being retired in 2191. UNSC Achievement was not scrapped, however, and joined the Lunar Museum Reserve as the earliest warship in the collection.
