Talk:War Elephant

There are four subspecies of Asian Elephant:

  • The Indian elephant: Elephas maximus indicus
  • Sumatran Elephant Elephas maximus sumatranus
  • Sri Lankan Elephant Elephas maximus maximus - the largest and traditionally the most effective in combat. A GM may decide to increase the combat ability of elephants from the Seylan and Sri Lanka regions.
  • Borneo Elephant Elephas maximus borneensis - smaller than the others, very tame and passive. I can find no records of this subspecies ever being used in war and so have not included Borneo as a source of war elephants.
