92231 Arado Ar-396

In 1943, the Reichsluftfahrtministerium launched a program to save aluminum alloys, non-ferrous metals and quality steels in aircraft production, especially for non-combat types. As part of the savings on these materials, the school Ar 96 was to be replaced by a new machine, made of non-deficient wood and ordinary steel.

Arado has moved the development of the new Ar 396 to Société Industrielle pour l'Aeronautique in occupied France. German and French designers designed a simple wooden structure aircraft here, only the middle cabin part of the fuselage was designed as a lattice of steel tubes coated with a thin sheet of steel. Steel pipes were also in the wing beams. The air-cooled in-line twelve-cylinder Argus As 411 TA-1 with an output of 426 kW with a two-bladed automatically adjustable propeller was chosen as the drive. The aircraft manufacturer SIPA was to build three prototypes of the Ar 396 and 25 serial machines of the verification series.
