/ Hansa-Brandenburg CC
The Hansa-Brandenburg CC was a single-seat German fighter flying boat of World War I.
It was used by both the Imperial German Navy and the Austro-Hungarian Navy.
The Hansa-Brandenburg CC was designed by Ernst Heinkel during 1916 for use by the Austro-Hungarian Navy.
It was a single engined, single seat flying boat, with a pusher engine mounted between the wings.
It had single-bay wings, with the unusual “Star-Strutter” arrangement of bracing struts shared with the Hansa-Brandenburg D.I and the KDW.
The CC was purchased both by Austro-Hungary and the Imperial German Navy.
The Austro-Hungarian aircraft were powered by 119 kW (160 hp) Austro-Daimler or 130 kW (180 hp) Hiero engines and armed by a single 8 mm (.315 in) Schwarzlose machine gun.
The German aircraft were powered by 110 kW (150 hp) Benz Bz.III engines and armed with one or two lMG 08/15 machine guns.
One example was modified as a triplane, while a second aircraft was modified with sponsons replacing the outrigger floats in support of the development process for the Zeppelin-Lindau (Dornier) Rs.IV.
The triplane configuration was created from the standard model by inserting a third, short-span wing between the upper and lower planes of, at the point where the star struts crossed.
Delivered to Austro-Hungary in the Spring of 1917, the sole example was written off that autumn following a landing accident.
