Cyclone missiles are a medium-range air-defense missile developed for the Warhound by Axiom Ordnance. These missiles deploy automatically whenever hostile enemy aircraft or organic fliers are detected. During the Axiom weapons demonstration on Bukari V, they were used to take down aerial drone fliers designed after the mutalisk.[1]

Cyclone missiles and the anti-air capabilities of the Warhound were absent in later versions of the walker, in favor of the anti-armored haywire missile.[2]
