This is quinquereme chess with airplanes which move like queens that leap any and all pieces and capture an enemy piece by landing just beyond the enemy piece. And squirells which jump two in any direction inclusding a knight move. Cavaliers either move like a rook but only to empty squares (not stopping) then one diagonally or one diagonally to an empty square (not stopping) then as a rook it may NOT move to an adjacent square.
