Arado designed this aircraft in 1936 as a heavy fighter with a short,
gondola-like fuselage and the Daimler Benz DB 603 engines mounted on twin
nacelle/tailbooms. The upper turret had a seat and was armed with twin
20mm Rh LB 202 cannon, while the bottom turret was controlled from the
prone position using a periscope for aiming. A crew of four was projected,
and a full sized mock-up was constructed before cancellation of the project.
No span, length or max. speed available for this project.....
