- For the musical theme see Cyclone (theme)
Unlike normal mecha, this armor system functioned to enhance the survivability, strengths and abilities of individual soldiers. Its standard vehicle mode made it resemble a motorcycle that was used as the primary means of transport. By sliding a switch, the rider was able to initiate the transformation into Battloid mode where it attached to its operator's CVR-3 armor and became an extension of it. Cyclones were equipped with a modular weapon system that was mounted in vehicle mode and served as hand-held weapons in Battloid mode.
The Cyclone could switch to a final mode called storage mode, in which it folded up into a cube that could be stored on larger vehicles like the Alpha Fighter. This feature made the Cyclone part of standard survival equipment for downed Alpha pilots.
