  TextEN  After the Ar 197 did not reach series production, the Erprobungsstelle See Travemünde (testing ground for sea planes) tested six Arado Ar 96 B-1 for use on the aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin, equipped with a landing gear and catapult fittings. The unit probably was the II./TGr 186, the aircraft designation was B-1 (Träger) (some sources say B-1 or B-3) and all were originally produced by Avia. The plane ids were SJ+UT, SJ+UU, PH+GD, PH+GZ, CD+OA and CD+OJ. It is not proven, that the special equipment was mounted at all the planes. Two (PH+GZ, CD+OA) were tested 1943 in Perugia-San Egidio in Italy. Furthermore the czech company Mraz 1942 was ordered to convert 120 Ar 96 B-1 to B-1/U2 und B-1/U3 control planes and carrier trainers. The order was cancelled on October 31st, 1943. (495)

Arado Ar199 V-3 Pantoffeltierchen  The Technical Office of Germany demanded 1938 a modern naval trainer aircraft. The Arado Ar 199 was the design for flight training complete seaplane crews. For pilot training therefore two adjacent seats for teachers and students were provided, while a radio student with the whole radio equipment took place behind. The machine resembled an Ar 196, however, was based on the Ar 79 and Ar 96, but all-metal and catapults capable. The Ar 199 owned two all-metal floats that ended in a flat stage. Behind was a keel, which was equipped with water rowing. It was powered by an Argus As 410C. To achieve good flight characteristics the Ar 199 had rigid slats and large rudders. The first 4 prototypes possessed a VDM-adjusting air screw, the last and the series, however, an Argus "Verstellluftschraube".

31 Arado 199 were built, 5 prototypes and 26 series machines.
  • V1, Mat. 3671, D-IFRB, then NH + AM (NH + AN?), E site Travemünde 1940, then Kemi / Finland 1943
  • V2, Mat. 3672, D-ISBC, then BH + BM (?), Crash E site Travemünde 1940

  • V5, Mat. 3676, RC + HR, test aircraft modified flaps, the E site Travemünde on 27/01/1941, last documented there November 1941.
Originally, according to RLM scheduling plan No.10 dated 01.01.1939 65 machines were required. The pre-series consisted of 26 machines (WNr.001-026), the last 4 were built in France. They were mainly used in the rescue. The series was canceled because of the need for combat aircraft was paramount.
Examples of series machines:
  • A-0, WNr. 0007, SAR Finnland Mai 1940
  • A-0, Mat. 0011, to Pori / Finland in May 1943
  • A-0, Mat. 0017 damaged in emergency landing in Chartres / France on 28.5.1943, to Travemünde
  • A-0, Mat. 0020, SAR at SNK IX
  • A-0, Mat. 0026, in October 1943 at 10 Season distress Stavanger
