well they call it an STZ-3 here where the photo is located:It's supposed to be a KhTz-16, but is actually a badly done post war reproduction.
The KhTZ-16 was a tractor armed with a 45 mm gun at Kharkov and Stalingrad out of desperation in the darkest hours of Operation Bararossa (summer 1941).www.tanks-encyclopedia.com
but the KhtZ-16 was the official designation. This photo however, being a postwar mockup has armor plating of plywood
