What types of research and development opportunities are there in the military for people who have Eng degrees?

I am currently working on my mechanical engineering degree and when I finish, I would like to work for the military. I don't necessarily want to participate in the civilian jobs such as the Corps of Engineers. I want to participate in research and development jobs, like the jobs at defense contracting companies. I actually want to take up an engineering job but at the same time, be an enlisted serviceman, testing my mental and physical abilities in the military.

Almost none - we hire those jobs out to civilian contractors.

Nuclear/biological/chemical warfare operation specialist is the fastest ranking MOS in the military, graduate on top, and the engineering jobs will come after you. It's not mechanical, but it's engineering.
