The captured German cruiser Prinz Eugen sailed to the USA in 1946 with two Ar 196s on board. The ship's catapult was installed at Mustin Field and some test launches were carried out with spurious markings painted on this aircraft. These were simply copied from an old German publicity photo of Ar 196A-4 GA-DX, c/n 1960124. It was really a Fokker-built Ar 196A-5. This airframe is currently in National Air and Space Museum custody for possible restoration. The other Ar 196 from Prinz Eugen is now back in Germany, at Nordholz.

Although designed for shipborne use, the Ar 196 saw use in coastal Lutwaffe units around Europe, and in the far north of Finland and Norway a small unit called the Sumpfnotdienst (swamp rescue service) used the floatplane for ambulance and occasional infiltration flights. Here an Ar 196A-4 brings a doctor for the 324th Infantry Regiment, likely at the Verman River front. Photo from my new Osprey book on the Arado Ar 196.

These Ar 196A-3 floatplanes served with a training unit based on Germany's Baltic coast. DW-EH, centre, was at one point assigned to the Ar 196 wing in Greece, but maybe never went there. The other two were among the few Arados completed by a reluctant workforce at SNCASO in St Nazaire, France. Bottom is DH-ZH which is not on record with this unit and supposedly went down with the battleship Scharnhorst on Boxing Day, 1943.

Of the 541 of this 1937 shipboard reconnaissance design built, 12 were flown from Varna by the Bulgarian Navy during WWII. This one was almost destroyed in a post-war purge against items of Nazi origin but was hidden away, and is now one of only three complete examples in the world, the other two being in the US
