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.

Third Guards Tank Army examining captured early war tanks, near Zossen training ground in Berlin 1945.
These AFVs were part of "Panzer-Kompanie Kummersdorf", but most of the obsolete vehicles were left behind to escape the Soviet encirclement - only few, scattered elements of the unit saw action in this area.

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.

GIs on a StuG III Ausf G with Alkett ex works camouflage, including the trademark dark yellow "whoosh" on the bow (olive green RAL 6003 base). This StuG also had a combination of "swinging" and superstructure shürzen plates.

Maybe they are signaling, like they used to on ships?

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.
