Machine displayed in somehow fictional C3MGHFT configuration, with wireless equipment fitted on C3MG plane as field modification. W.29, designed by Ernst Heinkel as an upgrade from biplane W.12, was the best float-plane fighter by the end of WW1.
Innovative design of this monoplane had great field of view for the observer and the pilot, as well as high speeds, good manoeuvrability and plenty of fire power.
These planes were patrolling North Sea, providing naval reconnaissance as well as anti-flying boats and anti-submarine missions.
