    For 6 years I've been in the Spetsnaz Alfa and I can relate.

    Combat engineering? Don't you clear mines there?

    Clearing mines underwater is pretty fun

    We do multiple things. We can utilize explosives and set up things like concertina wire. In Afghanistan we dealt with ieds. But we've been known in sapper companies to attack and clear objectives. In Normandy it was engineers who cleared the initial defenses that let us get up the beaches.

    That's pretty interesting, I know some people who are combat engineers and I may actually be one, but Its my last priority once I get to the IDF.

    We have a unit of normal combat engineers and we have a unit of combat engineers for special situations like breaching a well traped house. Do you have those in USA?

    I may not be going into the military, but I'd rather make some of the things that go into it.

    Dunno about other countries militaries but the US has perfected combat engineering. We use automated dozers for clearing minefields or places of interest. We have vehicles that can withstand 600lbs of explosives. We clear most minefields with the MCLCs and big uparmored vehicles. Our mine detectors are able to pick up plastic mines. We've really taken huge leaps and bounds with this shit.

    All engineers are trained and perfected into those. But they are all assigned to certain units. Sappers are units that deal with direct combat and use explosives with that. But then we have route clearance units that mostly deal with ieds and mines. But then we have bridging units, kinda self explanatory.

    That's nice, The other unit I was talking about is called yahalom. If you know CSGO then it's the counter terrorist group on Dust2.

    If you would like to read about them. They also specialize with counter terrorism. It's basically SWAT+Combat engineering to my knowledge. If I will ever join combat engineering, that's where I would like to go.
