The only times I use mines are when I'm defending (Single or Multi) other than that I find them pretty useless and time consuming.

Attacking with a mine is known as suicide. They are intended for defence. They are great at protecting areas like flanks. I love making the enemy fear them. Mines are great because you don't need many to make the foe think twice about a charge and its sometimes good to let them know you laid some.

However, provided that you have enough time in SP to coordinate defense and plant mines, would you take the time to do it? Or would you rather spend time in simply distributing the units in defense?

I love mines aslong as its not "lay down millions". That defeats any tactical skill. Best when it's open to options and part of the tactical mix. Maybe laying single traps in key areas might be good?

Thanks. On that matter, we as a team strongly oppose the use of mines in real life.

I use mines often in single player in case I have to defend an area for a few minutes and I am given time to set up with mines available. In multiplayer I really only use them on the frontlines game mode, but I use them more in AS than in vanilla because the mine layers come equiped with barbedwire/hedgehogs which makes them more useful to me.

I use them when i attack. I send engineers on the enemys flank or rear in an area of interest then press with tanks from the opposite more often then not they'll fall back to a nearby defendible point where ive layed tons of mines the gloryious thing is the opposing player is too busy on the front he doesn't notice half his dudes are missing till afterwards. Only downside is sometimes the ******* arent smart and stand in the middle of a ******* field somewhere.

Equip some as default on mission infantry (i.e. some claymores in a squad). Sending dedicated troops up or troops back to fetch mines is a pain, but if squads carry a few claymores as default, people might well start using them a bit more. Same applies to the NVA/Vietcong with their grenade traps and Soviet AP mines.

Will you also include the Soviet MON-100 directional mine? It was used by the NVA to clear barbed wire as well as as a Claymore-equivalent.

Sooo... Yeah. That cookie for the person that can name all the mines here?

We do have a question. Do you use the mines in singleplayer/coop/multiplayer? At all? And if so, are you satisfied with their effect? Got any idea for general improvement of the mine system?

Bonus nteresting fact: all mines work as intended. That includes the bouncing mines as well. :D

Edit:

Siaxis managed to name the majority, so I'll name them all.

By nation:
US:
M14 AP mine
M16 Bouncing Betty
M18A1 Claymore
M19 AT mine
M49A1 Ground flare

Soviet/Vietnamese
F1 Booby traps
PMN-1 AP mine
PMN-2 AP mine
TMN-57 AT mine
TMN-B AT mine
OZM-4 Bouncing mine
MSK-40 Ground flare
