Hi Hisname, thanks for the answer!

However, are you sure that it is a Russian SHKAS? What would a German unit be doing with this in 1940?

Thank you for your answer. Hisname. I also thought about a 7.92mm MG08-15 machine gun but I am unable to see the wooden butt in the photo....
Any idea about the tripod. Is the standard MG34 tripod ??

Yes, of course, they are very similar. The difference in size, moreover, the proportions are observed very accurately.
For identification, you often have to pay attention to the sight, muzzle brake, tripod and other small elements.
