Arado Ar 195

Manufacturer: Arado Flugzeugwerke

Developed from: Arado Ar 95

The Arado Ar 195 was a single-engine prototype carrier-based torpedo bomber built by the German firm Arado for service on the German aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin during World War II.

Design and development

A derivative of the Ar 95, fitted with an arrestor hook and catapult equipment as well as a taller canopy, the Ar 195 was intended as a torpedo bomber to equip Nazi Germany's first aircraft carrier, the Graf Zeppelin. While three prototypes were flown in 1937, the design did not meet the requirements of the specification and so was rejected in favour of the Fieseler Fi 167, which was considered superior.
