Jormungant's G-to-H is one of the two stable 2G-to-H converters discovered by Louis-François Handfield (pseudonym: Jormungant) in 2018. The initial stage converts two gliders into a Herschel. In the infobox pattern, a ghost Herschel marks the output location.
It is the basis of various low period guns. The eater1 on table-siamese-hookwithtail can be replaced with a BTS, but that would be one cell larger.
Without this, it would take 3 gliders to create a Herschel by using the glider synthesis of a B-heptomino, plus one extra glider to delete the B-heptomino's block. This would take 4 gliders if it is done at period 52, because the 53P13 would not fit in.
