Siege Tower?


A siege tower is a specialized siege engine, constructed to protect assailants and ladders while approaching the defensive walls of a fortification. The tower was often rectangular with four wheels with its height roughly equal to that of the wall or sometimes higher to allow archers to stand on top of the tower and shoot into the fortification.

A siege tower is a structure with four platforms inside and long ladders on the back which let the attackers climb to the top of the wall as quickly as possible. It was a high tower on wheels, which would be built and rolled up to a castle in an attempt to overpower the defenders on the walls. A siege tower could be used by an attacking army to try and capture a castle.
