In the years prior to the formation of the United Nations Space Command, nations and associations of nations built several military escort craft that were generally referred to as "destroyers." Following the Jovian Moons Campaign and the deployment of warships under the general command of the United Nations Space Authority, most national forces remained within the UNSA's oversight. They were eventually fully consolidated and commissioned into the new UNSC on January 1, 2164.
