Modern Siege (using Amazing Adventures)

I was looking over a few notes I did for converting d20 modern to Castles and Crusades. Or more accurately I was thinking about using the siege engine for a modern game. Now with Amazing Adventures in my hand it renewed my interest in this idea.

So here is my take on the Modern classes in AA fashion.
