The strange thing is, is that the mine detector is available under misc items when viewing a container (uniform, vest, backpack) when in the full arsenal from Arma's main menu "Tutorials > Virtual Arsenal".

When following orcmaul's steps above, if you bring up the debug console whilst looking at the supply box and type in a watch line..

cursorobject getvariable "bis_addVirtualWeaponCargo_cargo"

You will see the mine detector listed in the index for weapons.

"mineDetector" call BIS_fnc_itemType

Returns the info that a mine detector is an item.
