Acronym gicdatrid
Name great complex (ditrigonal) rhombicosidodecahedron
Circumradius sqrt(3)/2 = 0.866025
Vertex figure 3[5/4,4,3/2,4]/0
General of army doe
Colonel of regiment sidtid

As abstract polytope gicdatrid is isomorphic to sicdatrid, thereby replacing pentagons by pentagrams.

Looks like a compound of a great ditrigonal icosidodecahedron (gidtid) plus a rhombihedron (rhom, the compound of 5 cubes), and indeed vertices coincide by three, edges coincide by pairs.
