The minelayer itself is armored enough to take a beating, but is light enough to reach respectable speeds. It can carry five mines at once and can refill at a Service depot for free. Mines are very dangerous and powerful and one badly damages a heavy tank, destroys a V2 rocket launcher and does moderate damage to a Mammoth tank. It can also be used to plant mines in enemy ore fields to destroy or damage enemy Ore trucks. Infantry are not effected by the mines.
To deploy a mine, the vehicle must move to the desired area and must be double-clicked. A "crunch" sound will be heard once the deployment is complete.
The minelayer is not used anymore after the war.
