This is one of the most fundamental kills. The following conditions must be met for the kill to be performed:
1) there must be at least one cannon at the bottom rank controlling it
2) there must be chariot(s) or pawn(s) or a king that is able to to control the throat rank. It would be even better if a throat cutting checkmate was possible.
3) other pieces are required to help the chariot/pawn maneuver to the throat rank for the final blow.
This is basically a rank type checkmate.
