The ZUR-23-2S Jod is a Polish upgrade of the ZU-23. It is fitted with the more capable GP-1R tachometric sight unit. Furthermore, two SA-7 man portable surface to air missiles are fitted. The sight increases the effectiveness of the 23mm autocannon and the SA-7 missiles increase the engagement range.
Two 9K32M Strela-2M surface to air missiles increase the effective range beyond the range of the 23mm autocannon.
The ZUR-23-2S Jod is an improvement over the ubiquitous Soviet ZU-23 towed anti-aircraft gun.
The ZUR-23-2KG Jodek is a further development of the Polish ZUR-23-2S Jod. The main improvements are a new gun sight and the ability to launch more capable missiles.
In Polish service the ZUR-23-2S Jod is often transported by Star 266 tactical truck.
