Man and machine in perfect harmony

A soldier of 22 Regiment Royal Engineers, part of 1 Mechanized Brigade is pictured supervising the reinforcement of security at FOB (Forward Operating Base) Shawqat.

Each Armoured Engineer Squadron provides close engineer support to the battle groups within 1 Mechanised Brigade, predominantly with the TITAN bridge layer and the TROJAN Armoured Engineer vehicles and Combat Engineer sections.

This capability enables the battle groups to move, live and fight within their area of operations. More specialised capabilities are held in the Headquarters and Support Squadron, such as Reconnaissance, construction design and survey, diving, plant and Automotive Bridge Launching Equipment for the General Support Bridge.
