The Cyclops was designed in 2033 after indications of life on Alpha Centauri, it was produced as the Terrans had no long-ranged nuclear weapons capable of delivering a payload to Alpha Centauri in case they turned out to be hostile towards the Terrans. An obsolete ship before it entered production, as so it was not a favorite ship by the crews and suffered from a less efficient drive than the more current drive units and manoeuvrability issues.
The Cyclops did see action in two battles, The Battle For Mars when it was equiped with a Scatter Pack Missile System, that was used with great efficiency, the conflict cost 23 craft though and then in the Assault on Proxima Homworlds where the proximan defences were near non-existant. A few ships were lost here but none to Proximan fire.
