PrefaceFM 3-34 is the Army doctrine publication that presents the overarching doctrinal guidance and direction forconducting engineer activities and shows how it contributes to decisive action. It provides a commonframework and language for engineer support to operations and constitutes the doctrinal foundation fordeveloping other fundamentals and tactics, techniques, and procedures detailed in subordinate doctrine manuals.This manual is a key integrating publication that links the doctrine for the Engineer Regiment with Armycapstone doctrine and joint doctrine. It focuses on synchronizing and coordinating the diverse range ofcapabilities in the Engineer Regiment to support the Army and its mission successfully. FM 3-34 providesoperational guidance for engineer commanders and trainers at all echelons and forms the foundation for UnitedStates (U.S.) Army Engineer School curricula.To comprehend the doctrine contained in FM 3-34, leaders must first understand the elements of unified landoperations, operational design, the elements of combat power, and the operations process as described in ADP3-0 and addressed in ADP 2-0, ADP 3-37, ADP 4-0, ADP 5-0, ADP 6-0, and ADP 6-22. Readers must befamiliar with ADP 3-07, ADP 3-28, and ADP 3-90. Leaders must understand how offensive, defensive, andstability or defense support of civil authorities (DSCA) operations complement each other. They must alsounderstand the terms and symbols described in ADRP 1-02.FM 3-34 applies to Army engineer forces. The principal audience for this manual is engineer commanders andstaff officers, but all Army leaders will benefit from reading it. Trainers, educators, and combat developersthroughout the Army also use this manual.Commanders, staffs, and subordinates ensure that the decisions and actions comply with applicable U.S.,international and, in some cases, host nation (HN) laws and regulations. Commanders ensure that Soldiersoperate according to the law of war and the rules of engagement. (See FM 27-10 for additional information.)Unless this publication states otherwise, masculine nouns and pronouns do not refer exclusively to men.FM 3-34 uses joint terms where applicable. Selected joint and Army terms and definitions appear in theglossary and the text. Terms for which FM 3-34 is the proponent (the authority) are marked with an asterisk (*)in the glossary. Definitions for which FM 3-34 is the proponent publication are boldfaced in the text. For otherdefinitions shown in the text, the term is italicized and the number of the proponent publication follows thedefinition.FM 3-34 applies to the Active Army, Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States, andU.S. Army Reserve unless otherwise stated.The proponent and preparing agency of FM 3-34 is the U.S. Army Engineer School.

IntroductionThe Engineer Regiment exists to provide the freedom of action for land power by mitigating the effects ofterrain. This manual explains how (not what) to think about exploiting the capabilities of the Engineer Regimentin support of military operations.This version updates the engineer doctrinal framework (see introductory figure-1) that provides the intellectualunderpinnings for the Engineer Regiment and better articulates its purpose and activities. It describes howengineers combine the skills and organizations of the three interrelated engineer disciplines (combat, general,and geospatial engineering) to provide support that helps ground force commanders— Assure mobility. Enhance protection. Enable force projection and logistics. Build partner capacity and develop infrastructure among populations and nations.Legend:BEBDADSCAUSACEbrigade engineer battalionDepartment of the Armydefense support of civil authoritiesU.S. Army Corps of EngineersIntroductory figure-1. Engineer frameworkThe update of this manual was driven by several factors, to include the— Establishment of the Doctrine 2015 Strategy by the 37th Chief of Staff of the Army in June 2011. Transition of the brigade engineer battalions (BEBs) into the brigade combat teams (BCTs). Adoption of the JP 3-34 definitions for combat, general, and geospatial engineering. Modification of the three engineer disciplines. The engineer disciplines remain interdependent onone another; however, the disciplines have been rearranged to reflect the relationship to one another.The engineer disciplines are also associated to the lines of engineer support. The geospatialengineering discipline is the foundation that supports the combat and general engineering disciplinesand the lines of engineer support. The combat engineering discipline may support the lines ofengineer support, but it tends to be more associated with the first two lines of engineer support. TheivFM 3-342 April 2014

Introduction general engineering discipline supports the last three lines of engineer support most, but may supportall four lines. (See introductory figure-1.)Introduction of means, ways, and ends. The disciplines are the means to which the Regiment appliesits capabilities to achieve the ends. The ways are how the capabilities of the Regiment are applied toenable combat power. The ends provide freedom of action to enable ground forces to seize, retain,and exploit the initiative to enable unified land operations. Essentially, the Engineer Regimentconsists of the three engineer disciplines that are found in the operating and generating force, whichconducts multiple tasks along each of the lines of engineer support to enable combat power andensure freedom of action.Modification of two of the four lines of engineer support— Enable force projection was added to the enable the logistics line of engineer support. Ouradversaries will attempt to compromise our ability to project combat power by the use ofantiaccess and area denial methods by using hybrid threats. Early-entry forces must be capableof a rapid transition from deployment to employment. The enable force projection and logisticsline of engineer support is intended to establish and maintain the infrastructure necessary forsupporting early-entry and follow-on forces to sustain military operations. Build partner capacity was added to develop the infrastructure line of engineer support. This lineprimarily, but not exclusively, consists of training and developing local leaders, engineers, andorganizations, while conducting general engineering tasks with our partners so that they mayeffectively protect and govern citizens. It is the development of the intellectual thought requiredto build the institutions and processes to produce, manage, and regulate critical services.Developing infrastructure is the physical aspect of how engineers assist in enabling nations toeffectively reconstruct and build critical infrastructure systems and essential services to protectand govern citizens.Realization that we are at an important crossroad, faced with limited personnel, materiel, and trainingresources that is compounded by a complex and uncertain future where hybrid threats will employregular and irregular capabilities. The Regiment is faced with balancing reductions and meeting theneed for reversibility. Our requirements are many, and our solutions must be optimized to support awide range of military operations that can rapidly provide scalable capabilities to prevent, shape, andwin the wars of the nation.The doctrinal engineer foundations provided in this manual will support the actions and decisions of engineercommanders. But, like ADP 3-0, the manual is not meant to be a substitute for thought and initiative amongengineer leaders. No matter how robust the doctrine or how advanced the new engineering capabilities andsystems, it is the engineer Soldier who must understand the operational environment, recognize shortfalls, andadapt to the situation on the ground. It is the adaptable and professional engineer Soldiers and civilians of theRegiment who are most important to the future, and they must be able to successfully perform basic skills andaccomplish the mission with or without the assistance of technology.The operational environment will remain unpredictable with a wide range of threats from regular and irregularforces using conventional and unconventional capabilities, to include terrorist and criminal tactics. Ouremphasis will continue to be in the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific regions. The Engineer Regiment has beenreducing its Regular Army strength and restationing engineers from outside the continental United States tocontinental United States based locations over the past several years. This trend will continue. As a result, thereliance on Reserve Components will increase. Engineers must be able to support early-entry operations(including forcible entry where access is denied) to enable the seizure, establishment, and expansion oflodgments in an immature theater. We must be technically and tactically capable across the range of militaryoperations (homeland and abroad) to support the Army strategic framework of preventing conflict, shaping theoperational environment, and winning the wars of the nation.2 April 2014FM 3-34v

IntroductionThis edition of FM 3-34 covers the following information: Chapter 1 addresses the left side of the engineer framework, providing an overview of the EngineerRegiment and its organization and capabilities. It defines and highlights the interdependence of theengineer disciplines. Chapter 2 addresses the middle portion of the engineer framework, defining the four lines of engineersupport and describing the relationships to the engineer disciplines, decisive action, and thewarfighting functions. Chapter 3 describes how engineer support is integrated into the overall operation of the supportedcommander throughout the operations process. It describes engineer planning activities andconsiderations for preparing, executing, and continuously assessing engineer support.Based on current doctrinal changes, certain terms for which FM 3-34 is the proponent have been modified. (Seeintroductory table-1.) The glossary contains acronyms and defined terms.Introductory table-1.

Chapter 1Engineer RegimentThe Engineer Regiment is a military engineering profession within the Armyprofession that represents the Army engineering capabilities. The Engineer Regimentis the manifestation of this profession within the Army. It is composed of people—not just equipment, organizations, or technology—who serve with unique technicalskills. These skills are grouped together into three engineer disciplines—combat,general, and geospatial engineering. It consists of Regular Army, Army NationalGuard, and U.S. Army Reserve engineer organizations; the U.S. Army Corps ofEngineers (USACE); Department of Defense (DOD) civilians; and affiliatedcontractors and agencies in the civilian community. It has a diverse range ofcapabilities that are focused on providing the required engineer expertise and skillsneeded to support the combined arms team.ENGINEER DISCIPLINES1-1. The engineer disciplines are areas of expertise within the Engineer Regiment. Each discipline isfocused on capabilities that support, or are supported by, the other disciplines. Within these disciplines arepersonnel and equipment that provide unique technical knowledge, services, and capabilities that makeengineers a member of the Army profession.1-2. Ground forces conduct operations on, in, or above the terrain. The ground forces are affected by theterrain, and they often affect it. Engineer operations are unique because, whatever the intended purpose,engineer operations are directly aimed at affecting the terrain or at improving the understanding of theterrain. In this context, terrain includes natural and man-made terrain features (obstacles, roads, trails,bridges, airfields, ports, base camps). As a result, terrain is central to the three engineer disciplines. Combatand general engineering are focused on affecting the terrain, while geospatial engineering is focused onimproving the understanding of the terrain.1-3. Regardless of the disciplines, engineers must be prepared to conduct missions in close combat.Combat engineering is the only discipline that is trained and equipped to support movement and maneuverwhile in close combat. The general and geospatial engineering disciplines are not organized to move withincombined arms formations or to apply fire and maneuver. The general and geospatial engineeringdisciplines have small arms and a limited number of crew-served weapons that are capable of engaging inclose combat with fire and movement, primarily in a defensive role.COMBAT ENGINEERING1-4. Combat engineering is the engineering capabilities and activities that closely support the maneuverof land combat forces consisting of three types: mobility, countermobility, and survivability (JP 3-34). Thisengineer discipline focuses on affecting terrain while in close support to maneuver. Combat engineering isintegral to the ability of combined arms units to maneuver. Combat engineers enhance force momentum byshaping the physical environment to make the most efficient use of the space and time necessary togenerate mass and speed while denying the enemy maneuver. By enhancing the unit ability to maneuver,combat engineers accelerate the concentration of combat power, increasing the velocity and tempo of theforce to exploit critical enemy vulnerabilities. By reinforcing the natural restrictions of the physicalenvironment, combat engineers limit the enemy ability to generate tempo and velocity. These limitationsincrease enemy reaction time and degrade its will to fight.2 April 2014FM 3-341-1

Chapter 1GENERAL ENGINEERING1-5. General engineering is the engineering capabilities and activities, other than combat engineering,that modify, maintain, or protect the physical environment (JP 3-34). This engineer discipline is primarilyfocused on providing construction support. It is the most diverse of the three engineer disciplines and istypically the largest percentage of engineer support that is provided to an operation, except in offensive anddefensive operations at the tactical level when combat engineering will typically be predominant. It occursthroughout the area of operations, at all levels of war, and during every type of military operation. It mayinclude the employment of all military occupational specialties within the Engineer Regiment. See FM3-34.400 for additional information on general engineering op

operations, operational design, the elements of combat power, and the operations process as described in ADP 3-0 and addressed in ADP 2-0, ADP 3-37, ADP 4-0, ADP 5-0, ADP 6-0, and ADP 6-22. Readers must be familiar with ADP 3-07, ADP 3-28, and ADP 3-90. Leaders must understand how offensive, defensive, and stability or defense support of civil authorities (DSCA) operations complement each .
