Waffen-SS foreign volunteer enlisted man.
The problem is to determine country or unit, it could be from some Balkan country, if what he wears on his head
is some kind of Muslim fez, although it also looks like an overseas cap M40.

Nothing foreign-related is visible there. The guy wears a common SS field-grey tunic and a common SS tankmen's cap. An odd - but likely just a temporary, ad-hoc combination.

Cheers,

Are the collar tabs of the non-general officer GS collar tabs?

Suspenders for the padded winter trousers he is wearing.
