The moves of the Tank and Bomb are the same as the Tank and Bomb in the Exotic Pieces applet. And the dropped pieces from moving a pawn do end up in the space the pawn just moved out of.

'T=Tank: Moves one space like a king. It can capture as a queen, but without moving (rifle capture). Can't capture a piece right next to it. It can push pieces of either colors in a row, column, diagonal. Pieces pushed off the board are put onto your bench.' ok... i understand how it captures, but how does the 'push' work exactly? 'Pieces on your bench cannot be dropped like shogi, they can only be placed by moving a pawn past the end of the board. ' so i move a pawn off of the back of the board... where is a piece from the bench then placed?... at the last sqaure that the now-exited pawn had occupied?

Tank and Bomb movements seem too slow for a 10x10 game. Please explain Tank power, apart from pushing: Is it 'rifle' capture?

Yes it is rifle capture, I have fixed the description. Also, the Tank, even though it can only move one space, is powerful in that it can push pieces and can capture from far away. Even the tank and push the bomb.
