I like the idea of using missiles as torpedo warheads.
Give the mine a rating to use for both detection and
avoidance – to reflect both its own stealthiness and
ability to avoid detection and its ability to detect a
target which is of course reflected in its cost (or TL
if you want to go down that road).

Something Like:
			  Mine Quality
Ships Signature      Low    Normal   High
Low		      N/A      6     5, 6
Normal		     5, 6     4-6      3-6
High		      4-6     3-6      2-6
Sensors Active	      ---- Automatic ----

If the mine picks up the ship it fires a salvo of
missiles which are resolved normally.

Mine Sweeping
The better quality a mine is the less likely it is to
be found, and if you can’t find them your best bet is
a ship with very heavy point defences (ie. A Russian
or Iranian style sweep) – or a Nova Cannon!
