Dazzle camo actually worked extremely well and continued to be used in WW2

And yes, false visor paint like that would work well, for confusing Soviet AT riflemen, specifically, as they were the ones who would be targeting the visors.

"A specialized bunker version was also produced in very small numbers (a total of 500 built) in 1941, the barrel shroud end of which was thinner and flattened to allow firing through the narrow ports of defensive bunkers.[5] This version had no shoulder stock and was equipped with a pistol grip."

The hell is going on with blue dude's hat.  It's like a rogatywka on steriods.

This is what you're seeing- the grip for it if it was mounted in a plane.  These guys are just dicking around/training on it.

that's the point.

bfv is just a casual yolo game with just a minimal historical skin where the player can play an avatar that looks like them against others with various weapons and different anachronism to fit the gameplay (that's the reason why you semi auto-rifle like zh29 and turner prototype - because of the g43 specs  )
A casual game with a random context with a lifespan of 1 or 2 year before they release an other context and where player can grow their e-penis so they can show it to others.

Imo, they do it very well !

The only problem is they market it as a ww2 game whereas it is not the case
and this is the reason why people complain about anchronism

This.  All the this.  This is the same as BF1 and COD WW2- it's literally just a skin.

we have historically inaccurate STG44 ZF after all.

And I still say it should be burned with fire.

The M1C and M1D did not see service in WW2 until very late in the Pacific campaign (literally in the final days of Okinawa).  As such, it is totally inappropriate for the mod.

What nysa said- these are leftovers from the Russian Civil War and WW1.

Also it would be hard to put all of them in the picture if they weren't next to it.  :P

Given the fact that they are perfectly lit up (big light source to the left) while the trees in the background are dark, I'd say this is a completely staged photo just to show off the device and crew.

This is also true.

yes you can see the morse code command.
What i don't understand is why they sit right next to it.
If an ennemy spot it, he will certainly fire at the spot ...

Likely it is aimed backwards, with a narrow focus beam.  Thus, unless the enemy is behind them, it's not going to be seen.

Yeah, I'm thinking BT7 as well.  I'm kinda willing to bet that guy inspecting it might have been the lucky AT rifleman himself.
Or the scene takes place in some kind of shooting range, that would explain such deadly accuracy and why he is inspecting it so closely. It could serve him in a nearby future.

It's one explanation, though such close inspection is common in photographs of finished battles, and the accuracy is pretty normal for that rifle.
