Background
The Combat Engineering Corps is responsible for fortification and preparations that must precede a war. The engineering battalions are responsible for breaching the obstacles set by the enemy during warfare, thus allowing the forces to carry out their mission.  Engineering troops act as an attacking force and not as auxiliary troops.  During warfare, the Combat Engineering troops operate as an infantry unit in all matters and are responsible for implementing engineering missions, such as the detonation and demolition of homes.  The combat engineers are deployed nationwide.
