Tools of the Trade

Unlike normal infantry unit, pioniers were combat engineers who specialized in assaulting fortified positions or creating defenses and traps to stop invading enemies.

Because of the nature of their work, pioniers were given access to a variety of weapons and tools that were not available to infantry soldiers, such as: flamethrowers, demolition charges, minesweepers, wire cutters, saws, and various other tools to assault or defend positions.
