Piece Linker- VASL can I create the same feature in VASSAL?


I’d like to incorporate the Piece Linker feature in VASL into the VASSAL Red Storm module. I’m assuming based some amateur digging into the modules that it may require some additional code in the Red Storm xmlbuild file? Hopefully I’m wrong. But any advice and guidance is most welcome.
I’ve dabbled a bit and edited a bit, but am basically still a bumbling novice.

Many thanks
