The AEG G.II was a German biplane bomber aircraft of World War I developed from the AEG G.I. With more powerful engines, the twenty-four aircraft built featured performance adequate enough to enable them to see some limited operational use. Typically armed with three 7.92 mm (.312 in) machine guns and 200 kg (440 lb) of bombs, it suffered stability problems. Many G.II aircraft were fitted with additional vertical tail surfaces on each side of the fin and rudder to improve flight handling characteristics.
