it's very close to kettenkratrad which is standing behind gun. So the gun should have "split legs"? And shape of shield - can it be a 4,7 pak 38 (t)? - in original 4,7cm KPUV vz 38?

Indeed, that would also explain the short distance to the Krad:

Ummmhhh...I think it is probably an recoiless gun but I am not sure about the exact model...I would say 10.5cm LG40-2 (not 10.5cm LG42) as most probably....

Hogg’s book suggest 10.5cm leicht Geschutz 40 given the straight edges of the shield. The 10.5cm Leicht Geschutz 42 had ‘wavy’ shield edges.

The former was manufactured by Krupp while the latter was manufactured by Rheinmetall-Borsig.
