Well, the newsletter says it is a S-75 Dvina but the screenshots actually show the RSN-75V (Fan Song E) and either a V-755 or V-760 missile on a SM-90 launcher. The components shown indicate that it is a S-75M Volkhov. That would make it an SA-2d Guideline Mod 3 or SA-2e Guideline Mod 4 in the NATO designation system, not a S-75 Dvina (SA-2a Guideline or SA-2b Guideline Mod 1).

Mod 4 presumed optical channel and a camera at the "P" shack?

The RSN-75V2 (Fan Song F) introduced the optical tracking. It can be distinguished by the boxy structure atop where the twin parabolic dishes are on the RSN-75V (Fan Song E). That system was known as the S-75M2 Volkhov designated by NATO as the SA-2f Guideline Mod 5. The S-75M2 fired the V-759 missile which is visually distinctive from the V-755 and V-760 missiles of the S-75M Volkhov system that is shown in the screenshots on the ED website.

EDIT: I think the missile is a V-755 in the screenshot because I think the V-760 had a larger nosecone.

As the whole SAM position was named S-75xx (SA for the earlier versions) the complex of radioelectronic means was named SNR at least for S-75 generation. The photo you posted is 75M4 with a camera at the pylon at the shack "p" and RD-75 behind the shack.
By the way, this article
http://www.ausairpower.net/APA-SNR-75-Fan-Song.html
giving a good walk-around has the same mistake in designation: it is M4 with the optical channel.
And finally, I have no idea what is the version with a doghouse instead of narrow beam antennas...
