I have updated this game, to add 8 extra pieces.
Flying Armies plays on a 8x8 board with 'shogi-like' drops.

There are many variants with now a total of 48 different pieces showcased.

The new pieces added are as follows...

Ark .................. rook + alfil  (first mentioned 13th century)

Alibaba-Slider ...... moves like alibaba but must slide, first square must be vacant.

Alibaba-Wazir-Slider ... moves as wazir plus alibaba slider

Alibaba-Fers-Slider  ... moves as fers plus alibaba slider

Lion .................. the 'must jump to move' lion
(not shogi lion or murray lion, see Piececlopedia, 'Lion2)

Lion is not placed in variant, it is just in the zrf.

Dragon .................. knight + pawn

Knight-Alfil-Wazir 

Knight-Dabbaba-Fers
