Martin Becker Bf110G-4 code issue

I've been looking at one of the Bf110G-4s Martin Becker flew with 2./NJG6 in the middle of 1944. It seems everyone agrees on MK for the aircraft code.
But various sources have the Geschwader code as 3C, the Kracker database has it as a Bf110G-6(??) and C9 and others have 2Z.
AFAIK 2Z is the correct code for NJG6. 3C is the code for NJG4, which Becker was with from 2/43-9/43. C9 was the code for NJG5 and it was used by III./NJG6 for only a short time after 10/5/44 when it was created from II./NJG5.
Is there something unusual about 'MK' explaining the code confusion, or is it just another case of bad information being passed from one to another? Can anyone please confirm the correct Geschwader code?
Thanks
Peter

Hello Peter,

Tino Becker's Bf110 in mid 1944 was the following: Bf110 G-4 2Z+MK.

Cheers, Theo

Thanks Theo.
Given several sources also have 3C+MK, do your sources say whether he flew an aircraft with the same MK code when he was with NJG4 in 1943?
Sorry for the follow-up
Peter

Becker was send to 11./NJG 4 in February 1943, their code was 3C+xV.
On 1.08.43 the unit was renamed 2./NJG 6 and changed the code to 2Z+xK.
