Default Examples of Siege Engines?

From Agent of the Imperium:

Siege Engine. A naval vessel intended to launch ordnance against a stationary target (a world or an installation). Like Carriers, Siege Engines operate at a distance from the main battle.
Siege also shows up as a mission type in the T5 main rules (and was a naval assignment in CT High Guard and MegaTraveller).

Ortillery goes way back to CT, so the basic concept has been around a while, but I think AotI is the first use of "siege" as a ship class in Traveller.

Are there any canonical examples of Siege Engines, or ships that in retrospect would be reclassified as Siege Engines?
