Posting it here because at first glance, it makes the most sense.

 

Looking around on Google images, i came across a couple random AFVs(?) from a sketchy Russian website.

 

Spoiler

 

last one is a little  more normal.

The second small picture in the spoiler section is a Carden Loyd One man Tank, Mark III, missing the wheels and gun.  It was a stupid tiny thing.

ok, I thought "this looks a lot like the pic on wikipedia of an Ausf S" and then I realized no, it doesn't at all.  The construction of the turret was different, with curved sides and a projecting front.

This looks to be another picture of your weird 38(t), from the same tank museum?

First picture is a mock-up of a German tank, based on the AT-P series of Russian artillery tractors.

 

Here's a picture of the AT-P:

The answer is:

 

"PzKpfw. 38 (t) – Technical museum, Tolyatti, Samara Oblast (Russia). The turret of this tank and some parts on the hull are reproductions."

 

So they managed to acquire a 38(t) body, but had to build their own turret.

First vehicle is a modified sixties era Schützenpanzer SPz 11-2 Kurz
 

http://www.panzerbaer.de/types/bw_spz_kurz_11-2.htm

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sch%C3%BCtzenpanzer_SPz_11-2_Kurz

Note that the vehicle in the picture is missing the rear road wheel

The turret may is not from the original vehicle - it might be from something else or a fake. The "gun" looks fake. Paint scheme is WWII with the era's "straight armed" Iron Cross as opposed to the post war Maltese cross with "curved" arms

I agree that this is a movie prop. Maybe to represent the Blitzkrieg era MkII or MKIII
