The Combat Engineer
Repair specialist - an engineer whose focus is towards dealing with disabled or damaged vehicles, he carries a toolkit but no minesweeper and only limited demolition gear.
Minesweeper - an engineer with, you guessed it, a minesweeper. His focus is towards detecting and disarming mines - to do the latter, he also carries the bulky toolkit with him. Minesweepers have limited capacity for carrying demolitions and are typically employed as the point men in a formation operating in an area where mines are suspected to be present.
- Demolitionist or Explosives Expert - an engineer whose responsibilities lie in the employment of explosives. In order to carry extra munitions, this engineer forgoes carrying toolkits or minesweepers.
