Mines are explosive munitions that lack a long-range propulsion system, and have very rudimentary short-range propulsion. They are typically dropped from the rear of a Fighter or Bomber (and some Freighters), and simply drift towards the nearest mass object, and then detonate on impact. Unlike other projectile weapons, mines do not explode when they reach the end of their life, but instead become inert.
Explosion damage does Direct damage to everything within the explosion radius. This includes any unshielded equipment, such as the target's guns and support equipment, but also includes the attacker if he gets too close.
Mines can also be detonated by Cruise Disruptors and other missiles, and can be led off-target by Countermeasures, pushed off-target by Battleship Flak Turrets, and can also be evaded with defensive maneuvers.
