The War Elephant is a heavy cavalry unit featured in Age of Empires.

Overview Edit

The War Elephant is an Iron Age unit, trained from the Stable. The unit is already available once Iron Age is reached without the need to research a technology, however only a certain number of civilizations have the ability to train this unit. It has the most hit points of any land unit and an attack that damages all enemies around it. The War Elephant's downside is that it is slow and therefore a great target for enemy siege units. Their slow speed also makes them very prone to conversion by enemy Priests. Civilizations that have bonuses for War Elephants include the Phoenicians, Persians and the Carthaginians. Persian War Elephants are 50% faster while the Phoenicians can train them at a cheaper cost per unit. Carthaginian War Elephants are stronger than those of other civilizations. They can be upgraded to the more powerful Armored Elephant in Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome only, which requires 1000 Food and 1200 Gold.
