Arado Ar 76 Warbird Information

Arado Ar 76

Manufacturer: Arado
Designer: Walter Blume
First flight: 1934
Introduction: 1936
Primary user: Luftwaffe

The Arado Ar 76 was a German aircraft of the 1930s, designed as a light fighter with a secondary role as an advanced trainer in mind. It was Arado's response to a requirement by the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM) for such an aircraft, and in 1935 was evaluated against the Heinkel He 74, Focke-Wulf Fw 56, and the Henschel Hs 121 and Hs 125. Although the Fw 56 was selected for the main production contract, the RLM was sufficiently impressed by the Ar 76 to order a small number of these as well. The Ar 76 was a parasol-wing monoplane with fixed, tailwheel undercarriage. The wings were fabric over wood, and the fuselage was fabric over steel tube.
