Yes, any standard minefield layed by a ship owned by an SD (even when the ship was transferred to the SD) can be detonated.

Why would any SD even WANT someone elses silly little frigate minelayers? You KNOW they'd quickly get blown up, as you forget to move them out of detonating minefields.

Detonating minefields are really cool. I like to sit with complete detonating minefield cover - nobody gets in or out except the special SD hulls.

With the transferred ships you'd have to stop the minefield detonations everywhere they went, lay the minefield and run like hell if you want to start the detonations up again immediately. Most people seem to like NRSE so the frigate would probably be equipped with the FM engine at best, and those frigates don't hold a lot of fuel, nor does the FM scoop much fuel. The frigates transferred would be a real pain in the butt, and a wasted slot for the SD.

I'm not sure I'd even want a transferred minelayer-nubian. If I'm an SD I think I'll make my own minelayers. But I just don't like using a ship design slot for a vessel I can't produce, anyways.

Math? Confused Ummm, sure! Nod I do FREESTYLE math.
