A great ram cannot fail an attack; however, it is so heavy it cannot receive a Strength bonus from any single creature manning it. It always strikes, always dealing a clean 8d6+20 points of bludgeoning damage to the surface struck. It requires at least 16 Medium, eight Large, four Huge or two Gargantuan or larger creatures to efficiently swing a great ram. It otherwise corresponds to the rules and traits of a common ram, as seen in the SRD.
