Estoc Pattern Jetbike
They were renown for their speed, advanced optics and augur systems, but lacked the robust armor of the larger Scimitar pattern Jetbikes. The Estoc were a rare sight among the Legions and those Companies fortunate enough to have enough of them, combined Jetbikes into Sky Seeker Squadrons. The Estoc's Achilles heel, though, were their onerous maintenance routine and tendency to mechanically fail in harsh environments. This led many Legions to see them as much of a liability as an asset. Many Tech-Priests who maintained them, even claimed the Estoc Pattern housed rebellious Machine Spirits and often insisted the Jetbikes were housed in separate vaults, away from other vehicles. Despite these flaws, the Estoc remained in use by many of the Legions that continued to serve the Emperor. Their operators, however, were prone to indulging in a number of odd rituals intended to defeat the supposed curse of their mounts.
