It's only the first few rounds that they flip shit. They're deaf afterwards.

lots of beating training is needed.

That is one sad-looking pachyderm.

Elephants in war is always a mistake. Just not worth the expense.

I disagree. Nearly unstoppable in Age of Empires 2, unless your enemy counters with massed pikemen.

I was a Rome Total War fan, personally. Man, I loved me some Triarii...

If by massed pikemen you mean like 6, so easy to counter when you sae a group of elephants headed your way, and fast to produce. I've sent numerous pikemen to their death....... I need to play that game right now

What an incredibly stupid idea, could you make a bigger, more vulnerable target? I hope that elephant freaked out, crushed them all, ran off got a job and a nice girl to settle down with on a timeshare in Florida.

Pretty much, one bullet will take that elephant down and the rider will likely be crushed.

Reminds me of when we grabbed a 50cal off a tank and sat it on the top of our Rover and then made jokes about how we look like the stupid skinnies in black hawk down. Battle field life expectancy measured in seconds is the first thought.

Elephant will be dead within minutes of entering combat anyway, would be much more useful to use it to haul your gear around

Agreed, most of WW1 was learning these mistakes the hard way

[–] PhatBastard 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

This should have been obvious, no field test needed. WW1 generals were braindead

The trenches didn't develop for the first 6-18 months. Commanders still made camps and ordered cavalry and infantry charges unsupported by covering fire or bombardment and casualties were often near total

I know most of you hate Reddit faggotry, but all I could think of looking at this is the elephant thinking, "This is my life now." Look at those sad eyes!
