Back-to-Back: When pieces of opposite colors stand back-to-back with each other on the same file, they exchange their roles. P on the first rank cannot move. Any piece can make an en passant capture when it is given a power to move as P by BTB.

Very nice! Nice mates in such an open position. The two experts show the richness of this fairy condition!
