Well, I'm not in the PRO PvP deparment, but I guess you could just use a little bird to drop 4 of those guys, plant the mines and then get them the hell out of there. But why even bother, there are so many other offensive/defensive options that don't require that level of babysitting.

The mines are more of a meme thing to do, I have yet to see or hear anyone actually make good use of them; don't think even Bruce managed to make something of them.

Vanguard drones?

They are good for when your "idle"
At T1 if you go for the det center path massing vanguards are decent vs chinas and GLA'S
But should be avoided vs all other factions.

The only thing holding them back is the fact that all antigarrison infantry have a slow build time.Hence by the time you got 9 of them to build a small minefield thats as good as say a single molemine pop of mines.The foe would have gotten alot more done, thou theese are effective on maps like cold territory where you can ammass them on one flank and make a decent defence.

The issue is that theese things overkill ALOT, and they trigger on anything without having a chance to redeploy to avoid overkill.

As for mules getting that ability? Im pretty indiffrent on it thou I think giving the thing 3-4 of them to deploy at T0 might make USA's early game turting gig abit too good
(Mines for bursting down tanks that arent in high numbers and hives for infantry/light targets)

It could be an option after the Advanced Drone Warfare upgrade, I do not really like the idea of creating minefields early in the game because you can easily end a quick rush of light vehicles or infantry (especially of the GLA).

From what I've seen, the Rolling Rickys are pretty ineffective against fast vehicles.

Drone warfare upgrade has been removed and Its been devided among a few upgrades in the drone controll center that gives battleplans for only drones.
Drone workshop (Repairs drones for 1k)
Drone armour (1k for 25% hp on all drones)
Drone weapons (gives sentry drone weapons and switches hives damagetype from gattling to commanche vulcan)
Sooo it doesnt really fit the latest build as the upgrade doesnt exist

Indeed, plus gla has terrible mine clearers, especailly if you consider if they dont have marauders they cant even clear R1 ECA mines without taking damage

I see it's been a while since I did not play with USA in the last PBT... Thank you.

In any case, this ability would have to be available after a T1 or T2 upgrade and not something free or T0.

Oh I forgot to mention;Drone weapons also gives wasps their missles,

As for a free upgrade sure, but its ment to be used like the ECA medic (A support unit that has the same speed as infantry and a dummy weapon thats barely usefull)
Like it isnt ment to be "idle" to begin with, Alongside its speed, bonus to Infantry its ability also puts it in the agressive unit catagory.(The flares that trick AA)

Sounds kind out of place dont you think?
Termites to spawn theese things when deployed could be (Silly) but interesting, as In PVP termite drones would at max be effective agaisnt a foe ONCE or twice during the entire game.
