Field Trebuchet

Walls are nothing to the blast of trebuchet fire, and a man's skull fares even worse.

The Field Trebuchet is an essential piece of equipment when the Bretonnians engage in siege warfare, and smaller versions of these machines are sometimes deployed on the field of battle. Indeed, since the King himself commissioned a number to be built with which to defend Couronne, their popularity has increased. Still, Knights tend to put on a show of disdain towards siege engines - some refusing to use them at all. Nevertheless, it is a sign of particular opulence to be in possession of a Trebuchet, for they are time consuming to create and are individually hand-crafted. There are only a finite number within Bretonnia with the skill to create them, and their services are highly sought after. Although a Knight would never stoop so low as to operate a missile weapon himself, let alone a war machine, he could grudgingly see their strategic worth and allow his low-born servants to use them - for being peasants they don’t understand the concept of honour anyway!

Attributes

  • Cannot Run
    This unit cannot run and will only move at walking pace.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Armour-Piercing Missiles
    The damage of armour-piercing weapons mostly ignores the armour of the target, making them the ideal choice against heavily-armoured enemies. They are often heavier and attack at a slower rate though, making them less efficient against poorly-armoured targets.
