** after minefield decay and if a new minefield is layed.

 


The biggest minefield one will ever see, will have a radius of 146 lightyears. When laying a maximum size minefield that no one sweeps, the decay of five percent will destroy 1125 mines, which is the equivalent of 14 mk7 torpedoes or the sweeping power of 3 heavy phasers (webs: 4).
