The value of Chatras is that it makes the Battle Elephants highly resilient, and for a civilization like Vietnamese that requires support for their archers from other troops, having a tanky unit is a great advantage, as Battle Elephants can act as meat shields that guard the ranged units. A fully upgraded Elite Battle Elephant with both Bloodlines and Chatras researched will have 370 HP, a value that is only beaten by the War Elephant (620 HP) and rivaled by the Elephant Archer (350 HP).
