Mangonels have a unique type of attack that doesn't count as melee or piercing...or am I completely wrong here? Have scorpions do the same kind of damage basically have it ignore the regular armor. Just a thought :P

They deal melee damage but such a high amount that even units with high melee armor can't tank more than a few shots.

Exactly right.

The main reason for dealing melee damage is probably against rams and other high pierce armor units which would ordinarily resist the payloads. Like, we wouldn't want Elite Skirmishers being able to tank a direct Mangonel shot 11
