This Gilman has several piece-types with the three-square leaping radial-directional options in compounds under discussion. Both the words Tripper and Trebuchet appear descriptively for optional move of a compound. (Bison+Tripper+Trebuchet = M&B 'Beaver') is indeed there in Operational Chess by normal interpretation of the wording defining piece-type General. About the same Operational Chess II has (Tripper + Trebuchet = M&B 'Trilby') in piece-type Three-Star General. There should be no quibbling, where is the King, in some of these war games cited, for they are cvs too, as much as a Battle Chieftain or Maura's Omega or Lavieri's Travelers etc.
