seems odd that mines are soooooooooo powerful vs armor when they
are hidden in the water, especially in Laguna Pressa when you have one exit and you have to cross the water

sometimes I hear the AI voice yell "mines in the area"
(not always??)
and sometimes I see little white circles on the min-map
(but not always?? - or do I just miss seeing them)

some guys are really good , they also hide them in 'holes' in the ground
that is FAIR (to me) = still having trouble with the water mines though

any suggestions on handling them?
(besides staying out of armor??)
