The Cyclone is a tri-swivel-fan jet designed for speed. Intended as a race plane it was co-opted as a fast reconnaissance jet when the Empire of the Lion declared war on the Free State Alliance. Like many planes in the air war, this jet is unique and has been grouped with a selection of other speedy sport planes to fly missions over enemy airfields and landing pads.
The three swivel fans allow for a good kick and a surprising boost when in the air and a variety of fins make it exceedingly manoeuvrable. Like all former civilian aircraft, the Cyclone has been fitted with two pulse blasters, guns that utilise a weakness in the enemy shielding system to short out the command computers in the countless drones sent out by the imperial forces.
Another Sky-Fi creation, The Cyclone was first conceived as a take on the Captain Boomerang planes that feature in the DC Tangent Universe books. However when I got to building I ran away with myself and ended up with this. I am perfectly happy with the end result. The stickers are mostly from Exo-Force with the roundels from my selection of plane themed stickers.
