Ok, that's fine, but that wouldn't make it bad. If you chose to do that, you'd gain traction over bombers that used seeker mines... which currently none of them do. Seeker mines, which lack shield piercing, would actually be a good meta call, but they wouldn't be able to eliminate most ships with the same power as the shield ignoring ones.
