Another WW2 german assault rifle, fed from the side but in a slight bullpup configuration.

It was something a "semi-bullpuped" version of the Fg42, for as far as I have read of it. Knorr-Bremse AG mainly made weaponry for the Waffen-SS.

You are right, it's a prototype from Knorr-Bremse for the FG-42 trials. Rheinmetall will work out the various models of FG-42 and it was Krieghoff ("fzs" code) which will produce the finalized weapon of the first type.
