Grast Jetbike Squad

Pre-Heresy World Eaters Legion Jetbike Sky Hunter Squadron

A Legion Jetbike Sky Hunter Squadron was a specialised fast attack unit of the ancient Space Marine Legions used during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy eras in the late 30th and early 31st Millennia. These strike units utilised powerful jet engine propelled anti-gravity hovercraft known as Jetbikes as mounts, performing reconnaissance and hunter-seeker missions. By the time of the late 41st Millennium, this archaic Jetbike technology is virtually extinct within the Imperium of Man.

Imperial Jetbikes are a nearly extinct form of archeotech that dates back to the earliest days of the Imperium of Man. During this bygone era, any Space Marine Legions as well as other Imperial military forces, such as the Legio Custodes and the Sisters of Silence, also fielded Jetbikes. These gravity-impellor assisted, jet engine-propelled hovercraft were more akin to compact aircraft than ground bikes and were able to maintain great speeds for extended periods of low-altitude flight. Their lift-strength was sufficient not only to carry a heavily armoured Space Marine and his wargear aloft, but also to transport a variety of heavy weapons mounts and stocks of ammunition, giving the Sky Hunters extremely potent firepower. The Jetbike patterns in service with the Legiones Astartes were modifications of designs which considerably predated the existence of the Imperium and given the materials required to make and maintain them, the demand for them by the Legions always outstripped the available supply from the Mechanicum.
