The J.II was similar to the J.I but introduced an improved control system and horn-balanced control surfaces. To to improve directional stability the fin area was also increased. These improvements increased the weight by 55 lb / 25 kg.
After the armistice a number of J.IIs were used as transports (with the armour removed) by Deutsche Luft-Reederei. The J.II civil cabin biplane built 1918 had a two-seat cabin in place of the gunner's position, as well as a door and steps.
AEG built more than 600 J.Is and J.IIs.
