Engineering corps are special forces that carry out the most complex engineering support tasks for joined command operations, requiring special training and the use of engineering equipment. They also inflict casualties on the enemy through the use of engineering munitions.
When preparing and carrying out joined command operations, engineering corps perform the following tasks: engineer reconnaissance of the enemy, terrain and facilities; construction of fortifications and field installations to deploy troops; construction of engineering obstacles, including minefields, explosive works, and non-explosive obstacles; demining of terrain and facilities; preparation and maintenance of troop movement routes; construction and maintenance of water crossings, including bridges; water extraction and treatment in field conditions, etc. In addition, they are involved in countering enemy intelligence and weapon guidance systems, imitating troops and facilities, providing disinformation to deceive the enemy and performing deceptive actions, as well as dealing with the consequences of the enemy’s use of weapons of mass destruction.
In peacetime, engineering corps perform a number of socially important tasks: they clear the area of explosive objects, participate in the elimination of the consequences of man-made accidents and disasters, natural disasters, prevent the destruction of bridges and hydraulic structures during ice drift, etc.
