A two-stepper, but far from obvious.

I did it in two, an xy-wing and a turbot. Pure turbots are hard for me to spot. Skyscrapers and two string kites are the other two turbots but only skyscrapers leap out, for me. If I spot a turbot now I am probably looking for an x-chain, which is what it is. Nice puzzle, I like the H series best.

Thanks Dan!

I took three, an XY, XYZ and a kite, possibly the same move that Wapati refers to as turbot. It was on 9 and emanated from box 9, killing the 9 in r6c1.
