The same thirteen squares are accessible to all four Elephants on each side! This is following through a characteristic of 2d Xiang Qi, but not necessarily an advantageuos one and to an extreme. An alternative would be to have pieces on no cells halfway between two Rooks and all cells quarter-way between them. Depending on the symmetry this would give either 36 cells each covered by 1 Elephant (a complete break) or 18 reach covered by 2 (a halfway house).
