Engineers are en route to the building site!

Engineer trucks are essential to any campaign. When a building is ordered for construction, one of these fragile vehicles will depart from the nearest headquarters and take the shortest road to its intended destination. If the building is cancelled, or moved to be deployed elsewhere, the truck will re-route as best it can.

Like supply trucks, engineer trucks cannot defend themselves and are quite fragile, so be sure to only deploy them in territory where you are certain it's safe. After all, the cost of the building is subtracted from your resources, whether it gets built or not!

Like all units, engineer trucks benefit from ruses; for example, a blitz ruse halves the time it would take to deploy a building.


A combat engineer, also called pioneer or sapper in many armies, is a soldier who performs a variety of construction and demolition tasks under combat conditions. Such tasks typically include constructing and breaching trenches, tank traps and other fortifications, bunker construction, bridge and road construction or destruction, laying or clearing land mines, and other physical work in the battlefield. More generally, the combat engineer's goals involve facilitating movement and support of friendly forces while impeding that of the enemy.
