Sorry if this has been discussed but I searched the forum and did not find an answer.

How many dice are rolled in an elephant vs. elephant close combat?

From the rules:

When an elephant unit Battles Back after being attacked in
Close Combat it will roll the same number of dice as the unit
which made the attack on the elephant unit.

Exceptions:
Elephant against elephant - roll 3 dice.
Elephant against a leader - roll 1 die.
Elephant against a warrior unit - roll 3 dice.
Elephant against a heavy chariot unit - roll 3 dice.
Elephant against a camel unit - roll 3 dice.

You mean after unit elimination? Yep, nothing panics an elephant quite like panicing elephants...

Elephants can suffer from "Rampage" and the dangers of blocking another elephant's retreat like anyone else.
