I think its a cool idea!

If you set them to auto detonate, it could be difficult to balance them. Either they are useless because they wouldn't be mass efficient or they can only be countered by the ACU until you hit T3.

More opportunity for unit play is exactly what this game needs imho.

Bear in mind that the effectiveness of a single or low number of mines goes down if the enemy is moving cautiously or has very powerful units. The bombs will uncloak when they move to attack, giving the enemy units a split-second to react and fire. Some are still gonna die though :D

IMO Fire beetle should have cloak.

Basicly you should just mix one or two and a bunch of moles in unit mix. If you have stealth, enemy wouldn't be able to see any Fire beetle until it is too late, If there is no stealth, enemy would see a bunch of dots on radar including mole-fakes.

It should do any reasonable damage itself(unless on really small area), but stun all units exept T4: T3/ACU - 4 sec, T2 - 8 sec, T1 - 12 sec. This way you'd be able to do more damage on static target with some Arty or MMLs
