Heinkel HE 60.
In the early 1930’s Heinkel designed the HE 60 as a reconnaisance [sic] floatplane suitable for use on Germany’s catapult fitted warships, & the first prototype flew in 1933. Following two further modified prototypes a further 21 were ordered, final production being about 250 aircraft. These served on German battleships & cruisers but by the beginning of the war had been relegated to shore stations, serving for coastal patrol up to 1943. Thereafter they were used for communications & training.
