  • Siege weapons +20% speed


Beasts of burden, such as horses, oxen, and mules, improved the productivity of humans in any activity requiring carrying or pulling. A single man could drive a team of horses or oxen, which in turn could pull hundreds of times the mass the man could. This proved true in combat, as well. Teams of horses could move siege equipment into place much faster than even very large teams of men.
