Is has been possible all along. I dont know when the capability starts though. I am currently mining ports in 1944. Pick the bomber squadron, city attack. choose the port you want to mine and down in the lower left corner is a box to check for mining.

i've read in the threads that sequential aerial mining missions against a target each create a separate small rarely-effective minefield, they aren't additive & won't combine into one mongo killer MF. so if your objective is more than mere harassment, you must make a well-escorted multiple-sqn combined MF strike.

what w/ low production, mines are a finite resource & you must use them carefully. they auto-disable rapidly in deep water (1/3rd loss per turn?) so plunk them down in ports or shallow straits.

Aerial mining becomes available for the allies 1/43, IIRC. I'm not sure about the Japanese side.
