A bit more specifically, its population in generation n is asymptotic to (5log(t)2)/(3log(2)2). Even more specifically, for n ≥ 2, the population in generation 960×2n is 5n2/3 + 60n + 1875 + (100/9)*sin²(pi*n/3).
It is constructed out of a caber tosser, a modified block pusher, and a toggleable period 120 gun. Each glider from the caber tosser turns on the gun and causes the block pusher to go through one cycle (sending out a salvo and then waiting for the return gliders). When the cycle is complete, the gun is turned back off.
