StrategyEdit

Naresuan's Elephant is an early version of the Lancer, enjoying an additional bonus against other mounted units. Like the other elephant units, it moves more slowly, and requires no Horses.

The Naresuan's Elephant trades mobility for additional strength and the ability to decimate enemy cavalry, making it very dangerous on the field. The only units of the Medieval Era somewhat effective against them are Pikemen combined with ranged attacks, so be wary of such combinations when you field your elephants!

Historical InfoEdit

In Southeast Asia elephants continued to be employed in warfare far into the Middle Ages. In Siam, particularly, war elephants were highly prized, and leaders often fought from atop them. In 1593 a war between Burma and Siam ended in a Siamese victory when Siamese King Naresuan killed Burmese crown prince Minchit Sra in single combat atop elephants.
