The UNSC Buenos Aires was a UNSC Destroyer.[1]

Contents

Background

The Buenos Aires was sent after the Insurrectionist-captured ship, UNSC Callisto in what would come to be known as the Callisto Incident. It was destroyed and all crew members presumed lost when a stolen UNSC nuclear warhead was detonated by the Callisto.

Operational History

After the Callisto had been captured by the Insurrectionists, the UNSC sent the Buenos Aires, the UNSC Jericho, and the UNSC Las Vegas to hunt it down.

On March 2, 2494, the group managed to confront the captured ship. All ships fired six of their seven Ares Missiles. However, the Callisto managed to evade the attack by hiding under an asteroid. They then detonated it towards the ships by using a nuke that had been planted beforehand. The Buenos Aires was destroyed, and the other two ships were seriously damaged.

Trivia

  • It is named for the capital of Argentina.
