Operating from lakes, rivers, and ship-borne catapults, the Arado Ar196B was one of the most powerful of all single-engine seaplanes used in WWII. Its low wing positioning, long range, and relatively heavy weapons load made it a significant danger to shipping and enemy bombers or reconnaissance aircraft. Long after the German surface navy was largely eliminated, the Arado Ar196B was still to be found flying long-range missions off the coasts.
