(2) Figure 2-4 shows an example of an engineer group employed to
support a corps offensive operation.
The main effort is the
center division with supporting attacks by the northern and
One division follows in the center and
assumes the main attack on order, and one division is the reserve
and plans movement along routes behind the southern attacking
A separate armored brigade follows and supports the
northern attacking division. The organization of this brigade is
similar to that of the division engineer battalion.

(3) The corps engineer assigns areas to combat engineer groups that
perform engineer brigade duties from the corps rear boundary to
the line of departure (LD). When possible, the boundary between
engineer groups should align with the boundary between forward
(4) Division engineers clear routes from the LD forward as the attack
progresses. When BSAs displace forward of the LD, corps combat
engineer groups assume responsibility for supply routes forward
of the LD to BSAs.
They are responsible for other engineer
support forward of the LD, and the support is coordinated with
