Arado AR 76.

Among the earliest specifications drawn up by Gorings Luftfahrkommissariat was one calling for a lightweight single seater for use as an emergency “Home Defence Fighter”. It had also to be suited for the role of advanced fighter trainer. So important was this that four manufacturers, Arado, Focke-Wulf, Heinkel & Henschel, were asked to submil [sic] proposals. The Arado 76 came second to the Focke-Wulf F.W.56 Stosser. Nevertheless a small production of the Arado 76 was ordered as a back up to the F.W.76.
