Among the features of the Cyclone aircraft are bird-strike protection, protection from turbine bursts, crashworthy seats, crash-resistant fuel systems, and High Intensity Radio Frequency and lightning protection.

Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. and RUAG agreed to explore aerospace industry cooperation that would assist in introducing the Cyclone multimission helicopter into Germany. RUAG's experience in building, completing, modifying, upgrading, and maintaining military and civil aircraft and helicopters make it a competent partner to the German and leading international aviation industries. Its German production, design, and maintenance facility is located in Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich and has been supporting helicopter fleets for the German forces and border patrol for more than 40 years. The Cyclone helicopter provides multimission capabilities including anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, and search and rescue. The aircraft is a derivative of the S-92 helicopter, which gets its basic design from the Black Hawk helicopter.
