The howitzer is a 10,5 cm le.F.H. 18; The half-track looks an early Sd. Kfz. 6 with Pionieraufbau.

Hi, what kind of rifle is held by the soldier at right? And what is the German name for the pistol flare hanging in the center? The Eichenlaubträger is Oberfeldwebel Josef Schreiber.

The rifle looks like a K98 with a “granatwerfer”.
The german word for flare gun is “leuchtpistole”,
not sure which model he is carrying.

Rifle on the right looks like SOME kind of Mauser, with a 'Schiessbecher' grenade launcher attached.

I think I see the end of the short upper hand-guard so probably a Kar-98K, but there were several similar rifles made for and used by the Wehrmacht, like the Czech Vz-24 / G24(t).

The flare pistol is either a Leuchtpistole 34 or a Kampfpistole, I don't think it's possible to tell the difference without being close enough to read the markings stamped on it or to look down the bore and see if it's rifled or not.

It's a mid-late war K98k rifle with a grenade launching attachment. The front barrel band indicates the period of production, while the fixed side sling attachment on the rear barrel band rules out a Vz.24 or G.24(t).
He who lives by the sword, should train with it frequently.
