Abstract:

This study was undertaken to examine the role of combat engineer support to a battalion task force facing both conventional and nuclear environments. The authors intuitively believe that the tactical doctrine evolving from the defensive oriented warfighting approach envisioned in the European theater needs to be better understood for optimum use of the limited combat engineers available to enhance a favorable battle outcome. This study, therefore, is oriented toward developing a methodology for analysis of engineer support and then the application of that methodology to a specific combat engineer support area to understand better trade-offs associated with combat engineer force application.
