Ro-Tarn Dorsal view, Free Slashrim modified

Many of the first vessels taken in by the Free Slashrim, or "Ravagers", were of Helexith design, so it should come as no surprise that one of their first military vessels was a Helexith deep-range patrol craft. The HHW J'Tohk was captured in an ambush devised by one of Vasha Greshakk's lieutenants at the edge of Mahlok-controlled space, and swiftly upgraded for increased firepower.

The J'Tohk is a variant of the older Apocrita (Helexith name: Ro-Tarn) class patrol ships first designed in 220 PA. The Apocrita, or "Stooping Hawk" as it is sometimes called, is designed primarily for boarding action and commerce raiding, though it is decidedly tough enough to engage other vessels of comparable size head-on.
