Here's a scenario. I want you to see if you can work out what to do.

You are a Roman commander with 20,000 men. You have all the best technology at your disposal...including balista and catapulta, archers, long spears and all your men are armed with gladii.

The battle is being fought on a grassy plain. The weather is good.

Your enemy- Hannibal. The Carthiginian army has a special weapon- archers mounted on elephants. He also has 18,000 men.

How do you defeat him? You can use any weapon and tactic you have.

Study Rome: Total War for a bit, attack his elephants with incenidary pigs, have skirmisher's pepper his incoming infantry with archer's firing over the heads of my soldiers. Stick the spearmen in front to meet the attack as light infantry flank them. Follow up with heavy infantry and triarii then send a cavalry charge to rout them.

Or nuke 'em.

Hit and run with archers on the elephants... aim for the drivers, piss off the elephant.

Same idea with throwing spears. Oh. And Ballistas aimed a/ elephants, to be a jerk.
Otherwise
For a 'normal' battle like this...Spears in front, Some archers, armed with melee weopans in between. And, main infantry behind that, with masses of archers behind them. Catapults back there too....

Wait? What was the point of this?

id use that tactic, or use dogs. the elephants would bolt through fear, killing their own troops. i'd use archers, and artillery to fire into the enemy while this is happening. the handlers will have to kill their elephants, i would then send in the infantry, under cover of archer fire. i'd use cavalry to mop up.

before the battle dig holes in the grass put some sharp objects in their and cover them up, like Julius Ceasar would do 150 yrs later.
Or attack Carthage and beat him at Zama.

I'd try to be the one to attack first, not let him attack me first. Then I'd pretty much just whip out my gattling and pwn all those n00bs.

I don't think you need anything more than pigs on fire.

Well, if you really are going for an overkill, superglue crowbars onto the pigs. Crowbars that EXPLODE!

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.

Make a tunnel and dig mines all across the way, then retreat.
When the elephants chase after you, and pass over the mines, detonate them, bye bye elephants (and maybe a handful 100-1000 soldiers).
Now strap bombs onto each of your soldiers, and make all of them charge at the enemy. One soldier would kill 3-4 soldiers max...
And don't forget that if the distance is not too far, you can snipe their leader from the distance, and the army will scatter...


Or maybe bring lots of mice so the elephants stomp on his own army?

Send elite skimmers to hit the front since they have bonus attack to archers... then run some knights around to flank them. If things start going bad call in an air strike to napalm them.

It is.


First of all, I wouldn't be Roman, I'd be Greek. My hoplites would form a phalanx and rape the barbarians.
#36
One main group consisting of the majority of my infantry, a large group of archers and Siege equipment.

One separate group of archers and lots of siege equipment + infantry to defend them placed on a nearby hill during the night before combat.

All my cavalry will be used for flanking when the time is right, preferably kept hidden behind the main force, to accomplish this with the most effectiveness.

Also, as Kensai said, the pigs you can light on fire will be directed into the core of my enemy's army.

Catapults will of course fire at the main groups of their army.

catapult at the mother****ing elephants. which would take out the archers. Battle won.

sorry but wtf are you using siege equipment against a group of men for? siege equipment was used against buildings...

I don't really get how Hannibal expects to win after all of the bad experiences that he's had with those stupid elephants and being outnumbered by 2000 better trained soldiers.
