ARADO 95

Arado AR 95.

To meet an official requirement, Arado designed its AR 95 as a neat floatplane for the coastal patrol & light anti-ship attack roles. The first prototype flew in 1937 with the BMW 123De radial engine, whilst the second was powered by the 690hp Junkers Jumo engine. These two aircraft were evaluated against each other & the competing Focke-Wulf Fw 62, the radial engined model emerging as the victor. Six pre-production aircraft were used in the Spanish Civil War, but no production was ordered by Germany. In 1938 Arado offered the type for export as the AR95L landplane & AR 95W floatplane winning orders from Chile & Turkey. The Turkish order was taken over by Germany in 1939, & these aircraft served mainly as trainers, though an Estonian volunteer squadron used the type operationally in the Baltic.
