Combat Engineer is a term that covers a wide variety of jobs, from bridge-building to firefighting to minesweeping.[2] For the Royal Engineers of the 1st Royal Guards, their role is that of a traditional combat engineer: construction and demolition. Though combat engineers have a separate reporting structure in the LCAF, the Royal Engineers will integrate with any regular unit to get the job done. Though sometimes scoffed at by the regular grunts, any general will tell you that the Royal Engineers are a force to be feared.[3]


The typical armament of the Royal Engineers is the Gunther MP-20 SMG, a powerful and reliable weapon. Though lacking in support weapons, each Engineer carries equipment to build or tear down any sort of fieldwork.
