The AEG J.II was a refinement of the A.E.G. J.I with adjustments to control surfaces and the standard addition of two fixed machine guns in the observer's area firing downward and forward at a 45° angle. Combined production of the J.I and J.II exceeded any other J-class armored attack aircraft.[2] The armor was extended backwards to cover the observer as well as the pilot.[5]

Some twenty aircraft were delivered in Sept 1918 with a 20mm Becker cannon as a tank-buster.[2]
