* Brander, or the "Fire ship" often used in the [[WoodenShipsAndIronMen age of wooden ships]]. It was simply an old, wreck-like ship, with a skeleton crew, set aflame and rammed into the center of the enemy fleet ForMassiveDamage. Preferrably filled with as much powder as it could carry, but even when not, once the brander's riggings snag on another ship's, there's a good chance that its target's powder-magazine will shower everything with burning remnants soon.

* During the "Day of the Black Sun" episodes of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', the protagonists used large water trucks on the front lines so the [[MakingASplash waterbenders]] would [[ElementalBaggage have something to bend]]. Replace the water with explosives, and those same trucks can be used to breach fortifications.

* Warhammer40K: Orks ([[CrazyAwesome of course]]) take this trope and turn it UpToEleven. While some might be content with filling mere trukks and planes with explosives (and given how orks drive, that's pretty much what they do), orks hollow out giant asteroids, fit them with equally oversized engines, life-support systems and warp drives, and hurl them into space on collision course with a planet. Which leaves the rok with one of two options: crash land on target, unleashing thousands of fight-happy orks, fully equipped with weapons, vehicles, ammo and fuel; or airburst, causing a catastrophic explosion as the aforementioned ammo, fuel, and giant engines go boom. Both options are considered equally entertaining by the orks.
