Considering it is not made for maneuvers, that matters not.  World War 2 is "faster paced" to some, but the reality is that many times fronts quieted down for weeks or months, and in those cases trench warfare absolutely developed.

Panzer IV Ausf. H No. 536 belonging to SS-Unterscharfuhrer Willy Kretzschmar from the SS-Panzer Regiment 12 in Normandy. He has around 15 confirmed kills.

Apparently, his Panzer IV was hit by Canadian Artillery in Buron and it was immobilized for a day (explains the missing track).

That looks awfully much like Norway. And a captured Colt MG as well heightens my suspisions.

That can't be an MG 08-15.  It looks nothing like it. I agree that it is a Colt M/29.

What are those two other tank types that are shown in this picture?

I know the sdkfz 251 with 75mm in the front and then the 222 third from the front, but what is between those two (which is also on the street in the back) and the tank crossing the ditch?
