DESCRIPTION:

One of the older Cyclone designs developed for the REF, the -030 series was originally designed to be a more lightly armored and faster mecha than the general issue counterpart. A successful design, it saw numerous variants, culminating with the -038 version. This mecha soldiered on throughout the 2030s and into the 3rd Robotech War, where it served with scouts, anti-armor specialists, and forward observers.

This mecha had no built-in armament, though weapons packages could be fitted to the forearms. Like all Cyclones, the pilot of this mecha had to wear a specially fitted suit of armor, the CVR-3, to which the Cyclone mounts in Battloid mode. The -030 series Cyclones were most often seen with hand-held weapons, in the -A and -L weapons package configurations.


COMMON ARMAMENT PACKAGES

A: No standard fixed weapons; only hand-held weapons carried. (used for courier/messenger duty)

L: 60mm terminally-guided rocket launcher, mounts to front of vehicle in motorcycle mode. Six rocket payload.

R: Digital Video Recorder/Night Vision Optics
(used for reconaissance)
