Like its predecessor, the Ago C.I, the Ago C.II featured distinctive twin booms and a pusher engine. The C.II came in both two-bay wing and three-bay wing versions, and they were used in small numbers in late 1915 through early 1916.

Those that flew the C.II appreciated its speed and firing arcs, but there were never enough of them to make a big impact.
