Fast pawns are exactly like regular pawns except for the double step, so the usual capturing restrictions NE NW only apply. 
Super Pawns are really pieces that can promote similar to a pawn. They have no capturing restrictions. 
I adjusted the description slightly - hope its clearer.

You do not specify any restrictions on the noncapturing/capturing nature of Super Pawn and Fast Pawn moves. Does this mean that the piecees can move both with and without capturing in all directions, making the label 'Pawn' misleading, or is 'Pawn' intended to imply that orthogoinal moves must be noncapturing and diagonal ones capturing? Some clarification would be welcome. Ironically the most recent naming reform in my Man and Beast series is to pieces making one- and two-step moves in the same directions.
