The respect thread Wikipedia page for Cannae


In an alternate timeline, after crossing the Alps with his elephants and 50,000 strong army, and slaughtering the Roman legions at Trebia and Lake Trasimene, Hannibal rouses his men and heads to seize a large supply depot at Cannae, in the Apulian plain, only to be met with not a Roman formations armed with gladiuses, javelins and bows, but modern-day US riot police with shields, batons, tear gas, pepper spray, tasers, beanbag rounds and rubber bullets. They come equipped in full armor and also have access to shortwave communications for their radios as well as several paramedics and an ambulance on standby.

The numbers still stand at 86,400 cops vs 50,000 Carthaginians (40,000 infantry and 10,000 cavalry), and they come prepared with their own traditional weaponry, whilst also being supported by 10 war elephants and being commanded under the effective leadership of Hannibal Barca. In turn, the police also have 3 armored vans fitted with water cannons, as well as 5 regular police vehicles. Note that the riot police mostly only come with their 'nonlethal' weaponry, which means no 'real steel' bullets are in the hands of the police, except for a single Sherriff who will act as the general in place of Gaius Terentius Varro, armed with a Colt Python .357 revolver and 30 spare bullets, as well as an additional 50 hidden in a discrete location at the supply camp where Hannibal and his army are deployed.

Can the riot police win Cannae? Or will they be run down and slaughtered by the Carthaginians as history goes?
