Torpedo-boat destroyers originated on the Age of Steam as small, fast ships whose primary function was to protect larger ships from torpedo attack. The concept evolved into small fast lightly armored but heavily armed vessels used in the roles of antisubmarine and antiaircraft warfare and convoy protection.

In the Imperial Méxica Navy the term destroyer is still used to denote smaller vessels used for convoy protection and other independent roles.
