I would not know the machine guns, but looking at the radio, it is definitely italian. The person to the right has an italian tank helmet. All this lets me conclude, the twin machingunes are those of an italian L3/33 light tank. The specs tell me, they had twin 8mm MGs. But I don't know what designations.
The image show Hungarian tankettes CV-35. The hungarian tank crews weared italian tank helmets too, so...The radio could be italian, I do´nt konw but the I am almost sure that the machineguns are hungarian...

Sturm,

These are Hungarian I agree. The guns in question areDanuvia-Gebauer 1934-37M . If you look at other images of Hungarion CV-35s you will notice the distinctive features of this gun. Heat shields/guard obscure it in this view.

The radio is a Hungarian R3 see my post in radio thread.

Also the "Mousetrap magazine" gives it away as only ever used on the Fiat-Revelli M14.
