Trucks attempting to escape stopped by mines, 31 July 1941.
Did they drive into their own mines as a result of a chaotic retreat, or was it finnish mines as a result of being surrounded?

I'd say Finnish mines as they were pocketed in, most Soviet troops were destroyed and a handful managed to escape in the last moment.

That is the later turret model with the commander cupola. Mickey Mouse is the earlier type with two front facing hatches:



Cupola's hatches split and open to two sides.
