How would this play out if we were to convert to Shogo/Chinese/Korean Chess

Lemme see if I can recall correctly. There are rooks, Cannons, Knights,
Carts/Rook, Bishop(?), Vassels, and Kings (IF I recall correctly, and it's
only applicable to Korean/Chinese Chess. I'm not sure about Shogo, and I am
not talking about SHOGO:MAD either). So if I may...

Pawn/Vassels -> Ball Zaku II
Cart -> White Base Musai
Cannons -> GunCannon Zaku Cannon
Knights -> GM Gouf
Bishops -> Gundam[G] GelGoog
King -> Gundam Ziong

seen or played those variations so...
