Proximity Mines
[ << Go Back | Description ]

Proximity Mines

Proximity mines are designed as area-denial munitions but have also become popular with pilots as a means of covering a tactical retreat. Dropping a few mines in the path of a pursuing foe is often enough to encourage them to break off the attack. The high damage rating of proximity mines offsets their inability o move. Their medium sized blast radius means that any vehicles near the one that triggered the mine are liable to suffer extensive damage.
