An Agamatus Jetbike Squadron was an airborne formation of the ancient Legio Custodes, who utilised the powerful Gyrfalcon Pattern Jetbike as a rapid response and elite air cavalry force during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy eras. It is unknown if these squadrons are still deployed by the Adeptus Custodes of the 41st Millennium.
The Agamatus Squadrons were specialised in the use of the heavy duty, plasma motor-boosted Gyrfalcon Pattern Jetbike as their steeds in battle. The increased power of the design supported not only the heavily-armoured Custodian Guard, but also allowed it to mount a powerful Iliastus Accelerator Cannon as its on-board armament.
The Agamatus Squadrons exploited these war machines to operate both as a rapid response and suppression unit in the field. In this they operated much in the manner of the elite cavalry forces of ancient times, screening the main Legio Custodes force from potential encirclement, reacting quickly to blunt enemy attacks, and hunting down mercilessly any foe which broke and fled before the might of the Custodes, ensuring the utter extermination of the foe.

Gyrfalcon Pattern Jetbike
More powerful even than the Scimitar Pattern Jetbike associated with the Legiones Astartes, the Gyrfalcon is a heavy design more akin to an armoured, one-man speeder than a true Jetbike. In addition, it augments its grav-repellor systems with a plasma-thrust motor for huge temporary bursts of speed. A Gyrfalcon Jetbike is armed with a Iliastus Accelerator Cannon.
