This MOS is a special NMOS for the Engineer Equipment Mechanic, MOS 1341. The assault breacher vehicle (ABV) is a full-tracked, engineer vehicle designed for in-stride breaching of minefields and complex obstacles. The joint assault bridge is a full tracked vehicle designed for assault bridging. These vehicles will operate as part of the combined arms task force and be assigned to and employed by Combat Engineers. The ABV/JAB will leverage the known capabilities and logistics train of the M1 Main Battle Tank chassis fitted with Non-Developmental Item (NDI) systems, including a Full-Width Mine Plow FWMP), two MK 155 Linear Demolition Charges (LDC), Lane Marking System (LMS), protective weapon system (ABV), combat dozer blade (ABV/JAB), and an assault bridge (JAB).

Engineer assistants perform various duties incidental to construction design, planning, estimating, and management. Personnel assigned this MOS are trained to use optical reading/electronic total station survey instruments to establish the horizontal and vertical alignment/layout for construction projects. In addition, they are trained to use manual/Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) methods of preparing architectural/mechanical/civil drawings, to include computations for bills of material/earthwork volumes.

Combat engineers construct, alter, repair, and maintain buildings and structures; lift and move heavy objects and equipment by setting up, bracing, and utilizing rigging devices and equipment; and perform various duties incidental to the use of demolitions in construction projects and destruction of objects. Personnel assigned this MOS are taught carpentry and other construction skills as well as demolitions, specialized demolitions for urban breaching and land mine.
