The rook knight compound does not appear in omega chess you must have confused with the champion of omega chess which jumps to the second diagonal square or jumps to the second orthogonal or moves one orthogonally. Not the rook knight compound under the same name

'GHI,LargeCVm': Within its milieu of defiantly large CVs, Gigachess has nice group of pieces. Twenty piece-types over 196 squares equal the recurrent ten percent in not going overboard. One of two Pawn-types is also forward-only ferz. Theme-based too in having animal side and knighted side. Without such an innovation as Giant Chess'(256 sqs.) Giant, among the interesting units are Crossbow(Vao, diagonal Cannon), Lion(F+W+A+D+N), Elephant(F+A), Machine(W+D), Ship(equal half-Gryphon). A table of close estimates for piece values included. Maybe a unique winning condition short of checkmate, or central board feature/mechanism, or just two-three fewer ranks and withal piece-types, would advance Gigachess towards 'excellent'.
