Proposed Canon

First Appearance: WB2014 Duke Forecastle - Part 21

Fireball catapults are a type of ranged siege weapon seen in the defense of cities with ports and near water hexes. Like a conventional siege unit, they pop with crews which operate them. The crews can be led by a Warlord, which gives them the benefit of a Leadership bonus and direction.

As the name suggests, they lob fireballs. When used in the defense of Eagle's Gift, they set several Anchorbar Ships on fire which subsequently sank.

Speculation

Fireball catapults presumably have bonuses against ships.
