I do not think that this is a German weapon, but, beyond that, I have no notion of what it may be. It is one of quite a few unknown weapon photos in my collection.
Thanks for looking,

I believe that this is a expedient ground mounted French 7.5 MM mac 1934 fixed aircraft gun. It has been fitte with a nonstandard flash hider usually seen on the m1914 Hotchkiss MMG I am afraid that I do not know where on the internet I got the photo.

This smg seems to feed from the right, unlike most. Note also the m43 grenades with smooth splinter sleeves.
