I don't have a copy of TO handy but can you drop active mines with a vehicular mine dispenser?

Yes. Any land-type minefield is legal. Go nuts.

Nope. Must be something about the sensors they use, but active mines will only go after units using Jump MP. VTOLs and WiGEs are safe.

Well RATS! Was thinking of starting a WiGE race league. Each player can build a custom SV WiGE. (Guess just have to house rule it.)

We can. CGL did. Fulmar Patrol WiGE, TRO:VA. Also is decently quick, and can carry over a company of foot troops. Those mines just won't go after other WiGEs, that's all.

You can't put a mine dispensor on a mech, can you?

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

As with everything else in this thread, TacOps has your answer.

In this case, the answer is yes.
