Champa used the elephant in wars first. In 605 AD, a general Liu Fang of the Chinese Sui dynasty invaded lam Ap, won a battle by luring the enemy war elephants into an area booby-trapped with camouflaged pits, massacred the defeated troops and captured the capital.

Champa was formed in Ad 192, during the breakup of the Han dynasty of China. The Kingdom was known variously as nagara Campa and Zhancheng in Chinese record. The Cham people of modern Vietnam and Cambodia are the remnants of this former kingdom.
