I am at the beach now and I can't see the picture very wel on my tablet but it looks like a MT11, the MT12 has a side valve engine and 2WD transmission.

Probably some equipment, I realy don't know the real differences. But the MT10 is the early 12V Dnepr so I think you have a MT11 which is the last in production.
