The Freij MK II is an upgraded version of the Freij design, and is arguably the most capable civilian fighter marketed in the Tri-System. It is a development, by Ares Systems, of the Freij.

However, during the planning and construction of this ship, a small mix-up seem to have occurred, as the inner and outer weapon slots are reversed between the layout in the planetary weapon loadout menu and the actual position of the guns. Every pilot should consider this when installing guns, as it's better to have the long -range weapons nearer to the center fuselage in space, due to the higher accuracy on high distances. Because of that, the long range weapons should be mounted on the outer slots, and short range weapons on the inner slots, for the highest efficiency.

The Freij MK II was first unveiled in Aeronaut magazine in 2790, in an article by editor Niff Tiddell.
