I have now added Swedish Cannons to my 10x10 Mastodon Chess. Note the obvious advantages with this type of cannon in this 10x10 context. It is very mobile while, unlike the Chinese Cannon, it jumps both when moving and capturing. In the initial position it can slide along the first rank because the condition is fulfilled that there exist no jump moves. /Mats
