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,[note 1][5] and sometimes the KDW (Kampf Doppeldecker Wasser)[4][note 2].

Notes
  1. Because they were built by Phönix and of Austria-Hungary's A-class flying boat fighters, not to be confused with Phönix's own design based on the Brandenburg W.18, the Phönix A.[4]
  2. Not to be confused with the Brandenburg KDW. And "D" seems unlikely to mean Doppeldecker for a triplane
