Abstract : This volume examines the engineer platoon assigned to the PENTANA ICG. The engineer experiment compared the organization, techniques of employment, major equipment requirements, capabilities and limitations of the organic ICG platoon proposed by the Office, Chief of Engineers. The experimental data were subjected to statistical analysis and military evaluation to determine the relative superiorities of the two platoons in performing different engineer tasks, their orgainzational and operational deficiencies, and the equipment needed to upgrade them.
