This kit replicates Carthaginian War Elephants used by Carthage during the Punic Wars with Rome. Carthage mostly used a breed of elephant called the North Africa Forest elephant. This animal, which until recently was thought to be extinct, is considerably smaller than its more famous cousins, and stands at less than 2.5 metres at the shoulder.
Each elephant has been given a crew of three. The first is the handler, or mahout, who sits in front of the tower and is attached to it by a peg that fits into his back. The remaining men include a standard-bearer and two men armed with spears.
