The Dorok military use the Flying Jars as light reconnaissance vehicles, much like a helicopter in modern militaries or special tactical platforms.
The Jars are slow, compared to the other aircraft, and lack maneuverability but they can carry heavy loads and hover, both qualities that are useful.
The flying jar looks like a large ceramic cauldron with three short landing legs on the bottom.
The Flying Jars have an open top with one pilot and can have several pintle-mounted machine guns, each with a gunner. Some Flying Jars have heavy guns mounted in the side which appear to be some form of energy weapon. Maximum occupancy seems to be about 4-5.
