 7PA variation                                           Double ranked chariots variation  

 central cannon filed chariot 7th Pawn advancement vs sandwiched horse defence

This is a continuation of the previous board. The main discussion is on red using the 7PA variation and double ranked chariots variation.
I have based this board primarily on Master 阎文清 and Master 张强's work after briefly checking it against different manuals by different authors.
The moves give represent the generally "orthodox" moves that have been proven over time in many competitions. However, I do advise the reader to form his conclusions about the various formations as there is no sure-win opening variation in Xiangqi, and different formations may be treated the differently by different people.
I do not expect that anyone will be a master of this opening after going through the boards but at least , do not make the basic mistakes or go against the principles of this opening.

For abbreviation's sake, 
cc7parr = central cannon with 5th pawn advancement and ranked chariot,
sah = sandwiched horse defense
