1. Is the round discharged via a railgun type scenario up the tube?
2. How are you going to bore the holes for the mines? An auger of some kind would do the job but those kind of machines arent exactly built for service in a combat environment.
3. Pre-cast concrete piles in tube form are great for the foundations of your house but have to be driven in after the hole has been bored. If these are pre made units, would the ammunition be lowered into the base of tube post construction. The coefficient of friction for concrete and earth is quite high and the concrete tubes would likely have to be driven into the ground, this is usually accomplished by brute force from a driving machine. The large impact vibrations would surely be enough to the trigger the device if it went in with the first tube.

That is probably what the author intended, but IMO it would be easier to make a system that can be burried underground and fired from a small tube when it detects the tank above it...
