Roles and Responsibilities
The Division Engineers enhance the force's momentum by shaping the physical environment to make the most efficient use of the space and time necessary to generate mass and speed while denying the enemy maneuver. By enhancing the unit's ability to maneuver, combat engineers accelerate the concentration of combat power, increasing the velocity and tempo of the force necessary to exploit critical enemy vulnerabilities. By reinforcing the natural restrictions of the physical environment, combat engineers limit the enemy's ability to generate tempo and velocity. These limitations increase the enemy's reaction time as well as physically and psychologically degrading his will to fight.
