External Link: Swedish Cannon Chess

As long as there are jump moves, the Swedish Cannon functions like a Korean Cannon, it both slides and captures after the jump. However, and here's the fine thing, when the Swedish Cannon cannot jump it may slide like a rook, but without capture. This makes it stronger than both its counterparts, the Chinese Cannon and the Korean Cannon, and easily integrable in a Western piece context. A Zillions program and more information is here.
