Yeah it was a one off for the USS Defiant only, for use exclusively in the Gamma Quadrant in exchange for all information and intelligence on the Dominion. After the prototype USS Defiant was lost the replacement wasn't given a cloak. At least that's what it says in all sources I have read. Considering a war was on and all parties were heavily involved in it, there simply was no point.
