Available for unlock by ECA 3-star generals, Minefield Deployment allows the general to deploy minefields anywhere on the battlefield. The mines were taken to their target by a Pegasus Minelayer helicopter and dispensed over a wide area.

Mines were invisible to most enemy units, and could stop an attack in its tracks; they were used heavily at key chokepoint areas where enemy forces would be funnelled through a relatively narrow area.
