At the outbreak of the war there were 26 divisional pioneer battalions supporting the infantry divisions. A divisional battalion had 3 pioneer companies.

Each company consisted of 3 pioneer platoons and one flame-thrower section and a platoon had 3 pioneer squads of 3 teams each. Pioneer battalions were also assigned to corps and consisted of 1st Motorized Pioneer Company (with trucks), 2nd Mounted Pioneer Company (mounted on horseback) and 3rd Road-building Company. The 1st and 2nd Company were organised as above.

The Hunters (Vanatori) provided the reconnaissance troops of the divisions. Each division has two Vanatori companies equipped with rifles and machine-guns. Vanatori also made use of captured Soviet PPD-40s and PPSh-41s sub machine-guns, which they turned on their former owners.
