ManufacturerArado Flugzeugwerke
Primary RoleTorpedo Bomber
Maiden Flight1 January 1937


ww2dbaseThe Ar 195 torpedo bomber design was based on the existing Ar 95 biplanes. Aircraft built upon this design were intended to become torpedo bombers that would serve aboard carrier Graf Zeppelin. Three prototypes took flight in 1937, but production never started as the Fi 167 design developed by Gerhard Fieseler Werke defeated Arado for the carrier torpedo bomber design competition.
