The aircraft continued to fight in a scattered fashion until Germany surrendered on 8 May 1945. Overall from mid-1944 until the end of the war a total of 210 aircraft were built. In February 1945, production was switched to the C variant. It was hoped that by November 1945 production would reach 500 per month.
