Ship launched miner

What are the chances we will ever see a ship launched fighter that's specifically for mining. I would love to setup my cutter as the mothership boosting around scanning asteroids till i find a good core asteroid. Then you deploy the fighter (with the cutter parked a safe distance away) use the mining fighter to set charges and blow the asteroid and abrasion blast the inside sections then dock with the cutter wait for the limpets to finish collecting and on to the next asteroid...... now tell me that doesn't sound like fun
 
Actually, the title got me thinking about firing some guy with a pick axe and a spacesuit out of a multicannon.
"If you survive the impact, you can only come back aboard with 50 tonnes of Painite. Get digging."

Modified torpedo tube perhaps?

OP, that would be cool, but I suspect its low on the FDev priority list

Sadly, that doesn't sound like fun...
