The Navy Minelayer is a variant of the Tender hull that was quickly developed when the Navy realized it was falling behind the Procyons in Mine Technology. It has two huge Mine deployment drums bolted to either side, and an increased number of point defence lancers to aid in minesweeping operations. While this ship is armed well enough to survive in the thick of combat for short time, it is better used laying traps for enemy ships to fall into.
