Combat Engineer
Tier I Combat Support Role

A combat engineer (also called a sapper) performs a variety of construction and demolition tasks under combat conditions. The combat engineer's goals involve facilitating movement and support of friendly forces while impeding those of the enemy. Combat engineers build fighting positions, fortifications, and roads. They conduct demolitions missions and clear minefields using specialized vehicles. This may include the construction and breaching of trenches, tank traps and other fortifications; bunker construction; bridge and road construction or destruction; laying or clearing land mines; and combined arms breaching.

Support Engineer
Tier II Combat Support Role

The support engineer is a generalised role providing all manner of support requirements to front-line troops, but is typically detached from convential units, it is usually attached to a support detachment or headquarters element.
