I'm not sure what War Machine you are referring to.  The Dabbabah (meaning war machine) is a (2, 0) leaper.

I think the Panther is a fine name, but this is still the same piece as the Scout.  The initial move is a just a special case in that particular game.  A pawn that can move two spaces initially is still a pawn.
