The main purpose of the fighting elephants was to make a panic in the ranks of the enemy or to break the pattern of the enemy. 34 battles with elephants were documented. The elephants were also sometimes used during a castle attack. They were then equipped with heavy armor and were used in various ways, such as girders for gates or a base for ladders. It was attempted to use wild elephants (lions or rhinos) against wildlife elephants, but this was not effective by lack of control over them.
