The Brandenburg CC flying boat was named after the company's head Camillo Castiglioni. It borrowed the star-strut bracing of the Brandenburg D.I fighter. After testing by the German Navy, thirty five were ordered and delivered during 1917, with wing radiators and twin-Spandau guns.

Phönix built the plane for the Austro-Hungarian navy, and those models were armed with 1-2 Schwarzlose guns instead. The planes flew patrol over the Adriatic. At least 35 Austro-Hungarian CC's were built, and they were sometimes known as the Phönix A. [3]
