Age of Mythology TRL - Onager Ship Picture

The Onager Ship is the Roman siege type ship. It not only counters arrow ships but is also effective at taking out shoreline fortifications due to its long range and high attack. (Towers and Fortresses still do bonus damage to it, however - and the Onager cannot outrange defensive structures until it is upgraded into the Siege Onager Ship in the Mythic Age.) What makes the Onager Ship unique among Siege Ships is that the mounted onager hurls a single boulder rather multiple projectiles, similar to the Egyptian Catapult.
