Are you sure the mines layed will be webs?
No, only the xtals can lay webmines - you would only be able to expand xtal 'normal' minefields. The guide doesnt mention being able to expand webmine fields.

If the freighter cloaks will it still be towed text turn or will it be free of the cloak?
Unless none of the break free rules applies, the freighter will be towed as the tow lock happens before cloak. It will be cloaked though next turn.
Quite right - in fact I once towed off a cloaking ship that cloaked the same turn. This ship didnt have much fuel, so was unable to break the tow, and even though my ship was unable to see the enemy ship, because the mission didnt change, I could still tow it even though it was still cloaked. i just kept towing it until it no longer had enough fuel to cloak, that's when it got splatted by the Darkwing mwahahaha!

checked the guide again and it doesn't say it will increase the field. It says you can go to the same place as the ship inside the web and wait for it to be out of fuel.

Sorry for the confusion
