people have killed them in couriers. i did one with a fdl, i needed 3 or 4 attempts. ironically, on the successful attempt i didn't get to scan it, it jumped on me real quick.Hmm, sounds like a reasonable built, but the only Cyclops kill I could manage was in a fully gimped Conda or Cutter.
for me the biggest concern is the swarm. the interceptor alone can easily be evaded but the swarm is a lot harder, specially once it zeroes in on you. i spent my first 3 attempts trying to control it with the flak launcher but found the swarm is very difficult to hit with that except in reverski. this was very time consuming and once i got rid of the swarm, another one would get out. in the end i just went berserk, ignored the swarm best i could and finally managed to kill the cyclops with just a couple of gauss cannons.
in a fdl though, and receiving quite some damage. i probably wouldn't have dodged well enough in a krait. still not tried to tackle a bigger interceptor, but with double the swarm i'm not at all sure i can pull that off this way. need moar practice with swarms and the flak launcher.
