Mine Drop is a defensive support power available from the Air Tower.
As soon as a Nod commander has constructed the Air Tower, the Mine Drop becomes available to deploy. Once a desired location has been marked, a Nightwind flies over the marked point and drops several mines on the ground. These mines are immediately activated, and will detonate if a hostile ground unit moves over one. The mines are very effective against all ground units, and usually kill infantry instantly, and heavily damage or destroy vehicles. Stealth detecting units, such as Falcons, Seekers and Attack Bikes can detect the mines, allowing others to destroy the mines before they cause any more damage. Scarab APCs and Devil's Tongues can clear mines with Drilling Mechanism upgrade.
