Description

Designed by Hollis Incorporated as a platform to sell Magna Metals engines, the Cyclone A1 began mass-manufacture in 2631 and fell out of production when the Star League fell, only returning in the 3060s. Sporting a Magna 210XL Fusion engine, the Cyclone A1 can reach and maintain speeds up to 118kph. Sold as a Scout Mech, the A1 features both a Guardian ECM Suite and a Beagle Active Probe which leaves just enough space for its light weapons payload consisting of a pair of Longfire V LRM 5s in the arms and a pair of Magna Mk II Medium Lasers in the side torsos.

Description

A downgrade of the original A1 variant, the Cyclone A3 was produced throughout the Amaris Civil War and all four Succession Wars. Replacing the 210XL Fusion engine with an ultra-reliable Magna 150 Fusion engine made the A3 cost half as much as the A1 variant. While the A3 retains the Magna MkII Medium Lasers and Longfire V LRM 5s, the ECM Suite and Active Probe are replaced by a pair of Sperry Browning Machine Guns and a Zippo Flamer.

Description

The Cyclone A3P refit became popular in the late 2960s and became the primary variant produced, under license, by Luthien Armor Works in the Draconis Combine until the design was retired in the 3060s. The A3P retains the Magna 150 Fusion engine and Magna Mk II Medium lasers of the A3 but replaces the remainder of the weapons payload for a PPC and an extra heat sink. The Luthien production runs of the A3P variant were the first Cyclones to feature lower arm and hand actuators.

Description

After the discovery of the Helm Memory Core and the development of several key technologies, Magna Metals Inc. revisited the Cyclone design in 3055. The B2 variant features an Endo-Steel chassis paired with a 180L Fusion Engine to make room for a pair of advanced Hellcat Class 5 Thunderbolt 5 launchers with a ton of ammunition each and a pair of Magna Mk VI ER Medium Lasers. Further differences from the previous A3 variant come in the form of Double Heat Sinks, lower arm and hand actuators, and the reintroduction of the Guardian ECM Suite. The Cyclone B2 found only a tepid response from military buyers as the Thunderbolt missiles are susceptible to being rendered ineffectual by Anti-Missile Systems.

Description

After the lack-luster reaction to the Cyclone B2 in most markets, Magna Metals Inc., in collaboration with Hollis Incorporated, developed the C1 variant. The Cyclone C1 is built around the same Magna 210XL engine of the A1 variant. Using the same Endo-Steel chassis of the B2, the C1 replaces the weapons payload of the B2 with a Magna Firestar ER PPC, a pair of Magna Mk VI ER Medium Lasers, a Guardian ECM Suite, and an additional Double Heat Sink.

Description

Designed by request of House Davion and in cooperation with the New Avalon Institute of Science, the Cyclone D1 stands apart from the rest of the Cyclone family. The D1 sports a Mydron Snakekiller Light Autocannon 5 in each arm backed up with a Magna VI ER Medium Laser and one ton of ammunition in each side torso. This variant is also built on the same Endo-Steel chassis as the B2 but drops the lower arm and hand actuators and utilizes a Magna 180XL engine.

Description

Piloted by Haley 'Hail Storm' Flannigan, this custom variant strode onto the Solaris arenas in the 3062 season. Built off of the Cyclone C1 variant, Flannigan's Cyclone replaces the ER PPC with an advanced Ceres Arms Crusher Plasma Rifle, much to the pyrotechnic enjoyment of the crowd. This variant also drops the ER Medium Lasers and ECM Suite entirely in favor of a pair of repurposed Retractable Blades for close-in knife fighting.
