In United States Army doctrine, combat support is the set of functions that directly assists combat arms troops in fighting an adversary. Traditionally, the branches involved in combat support, as distinct from the more general support role of combat service support, are:

  • Chemical (WMD detection, protection and decontamination; smoke generation)
  • Military Intelligence Corps
  • Military Police Corps
  • Signal Corps (communications)
