The First Expeditionary Fleet participated in the First Mishhuvurthyar War.
In YE 41, following a major conflict with the Interstellar Kingdom Of Kuvexia, the majority of the existing First Expeditionary Fleet was de-established and remaining ships were transferred to the First Fleet per the orders of COMSTARARMY Ketsurui Yui. The orders for re-establishment were made immediately, and Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko was given the command and oversight of the rebuilding of the fleet from scratch.
In YE 42, after the completion of the YSS Tokyo and over three hundred ships, the re-establishment was considered a success. It would be just the beginning as the fleet began to take an active role in the Kuvexian War.
