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.


I wouldn't have a clue why anybody would do that, just answering a question ... Wink

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.


True, when you're SD your minelaying is probably always superior to everyone else, except maybe another SD, so transferring minelayers is wasting slots.
However other specialised designs are worth sacrificing a slot, like getting robber baron ships from an SS, or 98% cloacked pen scan scouts (type not hull) all over the place ... Hm, maybe a 98% cloacked rogue scanner+sweeper+minelayer would be an "alien" Grin minelayer design I would keep as SD, but here the minelaying would be secondary ...
