A H-to-MWSS is a Spartan converter found by Tanner Jacobi in October 2015, which converts an input Herschel to a middleweight spaceship. The key discovery was a very small but slightly dirty H-to-MWSS conduit, where a Herschel is catalyzed to produce an MWSS but also leaves behind a beehive. Prefixing two R64 conduits to this produces a composite converter that successfully deletes the beehive in advance, using the input Herschel's first natural glider.

The infobox pattern contains initial ghost Herschels marking the three Herschel (or Herschel great-grandparent) locations in the H-to-MWSS conduit. The pattern also includes a common way of reaching the input Herschel by prepending an Fx77, but that additional conduit is not a necessary part of the H-to-MWSS.

There are many other ways to remove the unwanted beehive using a spare glider or additional conduits, but they are generally less compact than this.
