Per google translate:

After the German Hansa-Brandenburg W29 pattern / C-type – one also developed by Professor Heinkel Seejäger with two floats – a squadron were still ordered 24 pieces in UFAG than under license.
3 machines were built and tested to end of war – all 25 engines were ready.

I don’t know why I have such a soft spot for floatplane fighters, but they are some of my favorites.
