Star Mines are a special weapon used for area denial. Mines are initially immobile, but when an enemy ship comes close enough, they follow the ship until they either hit or are shot down by point defence Lancers. Mines can only be placed by the Minelayer class of ships, which only the Terran Empire and Procyon Expanse have access to.

HistoryEdit

Star Mines are the weapons that sailors have the most nightmares about. Small metal canisters filled with explosives, they are nearly impossible to see on the open Etherium. When an enemy ship gets too close, they suddenly come alive, their rudimentary propulsion system pushing them against the hull where they detonate. Mines are best dropped either during battle when nearby ships won't be able to avoid them, or placed somewhere enemy ships are sure to go, such as their repair docks.
