MikeL said:I'm pretty sure this has been discussed here.
How often they see combat depends on the theatre and their employment. For example if they were attached to a Combat Team/Rifle Company say during Op Medusa then they saw their share of combat. They can be used for breaching(making holes in walls, etc), blowing IEDs, etc. There is also the Combat Engineers who do more of the construction type roles like building up FOBs, etc We had Engineers helping build up our COP, etc. There was also Engineers as part of the BG QRF, some worked in the BG TOC at ESCC. I'm quite sure I'm missing a number of other roles they fill.
You will probably want to look around the Engineer sub forum within this section(Combat Arms)

I was wondering if specific CERs (1,2,5) or the 4 ESR did more combat than others? Or more humanitarian missions? Or more building FOBs/bridging stuff like that?
Thank you for hopefully responding!
