Light Barbarian Chariot bonuses

Please help to deal. In the Main Rules (3rd ed) is written:

Light barbarian chariot units may either stay in position or
move one, two or three hexes and Close Combat an adjacent
enemy unit with 2 battle dice. A barbarian chariot unit at full
strength Close Combats with 1 additional battle die and may
ignore one flag rolled against it. A barbarian chariot unit loses
these bonuses after its first block is lost,


But here on the site it is written:

A Barbarian Light Chariot may ignore one sword hit rolled against it.
Taken from Ancients - Commands and Colors System website.
www.commandsandcolors.net/ancients/
Page title: New Unit Type (Expansion 2) - Ancients - Commands and Colors System
Page link: www.commandsandcolors.net/ancients/the-g...ype-expansion-2.html


What is correct?
And please answer two questions:
1) Is Barbarian Light Chariot may ignore one sword or one flag?
2) Is A Barbarian Light Chariot may ignore it always or only if it at full strength?

Thanks for advance,
Maxim

the ignore 1 flag is new to me, and I note it is exactly the same wording as Warriors. I think it is 1 extra die when attacking at Full Strength only. That is consistent with the chart.

Answers to questions
1) 1 Sword
2) Always

Other chariot types, (Heavy & Light) can also ignore 1 Sword hit.

When the unit is at full strength, that is it has not yet suffered block losses, it can ignore BOTH a sword and a flag result. When the unit has been reduced, then it can ignore only a sword result.
