Subject.
They would be a squad in the military who could be assigned to rooms designated from siege equipment.

Aww, I was hoping for actual crews assigned to each ballista, for pooling skills. Having a spotter, a loader, and a guy to make the actual facing corrections would be sweet.

But I still +1 your idea.

What if it was both?

That'd be cool.

+1 for that idea as well.

I probably should have been more specific :) I meant to have different positions in the squad too. Like the spotter would use the observer skill and might benefit from use of an eyeglass or something like that. The idea of positions within a squad could be more definable that way.

Even regular squads could have some sort of positions customization, like a flag-bearer for morale.

Though mostly, it would be useful to at least have operating siege equipment as a military action. It is a little cumbersome to get the civvies to run a ballista while also using burrow restrictions to keep the rest indoors.
