The ZUR-23-2KG Jodek-KG is the latest version of the ZUR-23-2S Jod. KG stands for "Kolimatorowy Grom", Polish for "collimator Grom". It follows the same design principle as the Jod, but is fitted with a new sight and more capable missiles. The improved sight unit is the CKE-2 collimator sight. The two SA-7 missiles have been replaced by the more capable Polish GROM surface to air missile.
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.
The ZUR-23-2KG Jodek is based on the widely used Soviet ZU-23 anti-aircraft gun. At a glance both systems look rather similar.
