Abstract:

Combat engineer support to mechanized forces has been described as uncoordinated, unimaginative, and poorly planned and executed. Seldom is the synergistic potential of engineers realized on todays battlefield. While doctrine has changed and technology has made quantum leaps in the last 40 years, the engineer support concept for heavy forces has remained unchanged. E-Force corrects current engineer support deficiencies in heavy forces, creates an environment to significantly improve future engineer-maneuver effectiveness, and eliminates several in-house engineer problems. Implementation costs are relatively low and organizational changes can be accomplished within current force structure. Maneuver and engineer commanders must push for immediate implementation. Author
