The Battering Ram is the Humans' basic (wall) siege engine.

Use

Basic siege equipment targets the city wall during a siege operation. Siege equipment of any type does not add attack or defensive value to an army, nor ever hit anything besides its target. It is however vulnerable to losses in the same manner as groups of units in an army that is attacked--i.e. percentage of total count lost per group.

Due to the high upkeep, destroying siege units gives commanders much experience.
