Siege Towers are essentially land ships or mobile fortresses that can garrison a large force of infantry and pour protected arrowfire into a battlefield - they are brutal and fortunately only generally available to Diadochi states such as the Ptolemies, Seleucids, Macedonians and Hellenes. They can Garrison up to 20 infantry, to pour from 0 to 10 arrows at a time towards enemy units - typically only other siege units such as Battering Rams can counter such firepower.

Siege Towers are typically constructed at your Fortress.
