Strategy Edit

Similarly to other battering rams, the battering rams of Gondor and Arnor are a cheaper alternative to ranged siege. The main use of battering rams is to smash down gates and other buildings. In this way they can easily break a siege. They could be used in groups of at least 2 in order to harass the enemy by striking outer buildings. The higher number ensures that the task can be completed quickly and also acts as an insurance if one is destroyed. Battering Rams are vulnerable to ranged siege, as well as melee attacks. Therefore, it is recommended that the rams are protected by a force of infantry (including pikemen to counter cavalry). Gondor and Arnor's rams stick out visually due to their roofs, so it would be difficult to hide them in an army. If you are trying to use them for stealth attacks, then ensure that you distract enemy forces from the target first.
