English term or phrase: Light EFP Mine
This is a video game called Battlestar Galactica. The term "Light EFP Mine" is explained later on:

Explosively Formed Penetrator mines feature an array of micro-thrusters and an advanced shaped charge. When triggered, they automatically spin towards the target and fire a dense 'slug' of hyper-velocity metal that can rip through the thickest armor.

I found that EFP stands for "Penetrador Formado Explosivamente"

Thank you for the help!
