A lot of discussion has gone before about what happens when SDs transfer minelayers to other races (do they still lay double mines, can they detonate remotely, etc. [answers = no to both IIRC]). I can't recall ever seeing anything about what happens if other races transfer their minelayers to an SD. Do they automatically start laying minefields at double rates? Can transferred minelayers create detonatable fields?
Why would anyone do this, anyway? It could be a quick way for an SD ally to gain significantly more minelayers in a short period of time than they could build on their own.
Anybody know the answers to this?
Detonating minefields is exclusive to the SD PRT.
Laying mines on arrival is exclusive to the SD PRT.
Doubling the efficiency of the minelaying pods is HULL related.
(Like it says in the tech browser.)
What happens when SDs transfer minelayers to other races?
-do they still lay double mines
Yes, if those minelayers are based on the MML and SML hull.
No, if those minelayers are of the commonly seen FF design.
-can they detonate remotely
No, only an SD can detonate his minefields.
What happens if other races transfer their minelayers to an SD.
-do they automatically start laying minefields at double rates?
No, the minelayers the other races build are not based on the MML and SML hull, and only those 2 hulls can double their efficiency.
-can transferred minelayers create detonatable fields?
Yes, any standard minefield layed by a ship owned by an SD (even when the ship was transferred to the SD) can be detonated.
[Edit: added the lay on arrival part]
