The Arado Ar 195  design was intended for operations from Germany's first aircraft carrier, the Graf Zeppelin. The aircraft was developed as a carrier-based torpedo. bomber
The Ar 195 was based on the Ar 95 with major differences: Mainly on a tail arrester hook for catapult-launching. The Ar 195 featured a single BMW 132  radial engine, biplane wings, and crewed by a pilot and rear gunner. Landing gear was fixed and a single vertical tail surface . Armament consisted of a single 7.92mm machine gun in a forward fixed firing position for the pilot and an additional 7.92mm machine gun in a  flexible rear gun mount. A single bomb or torpedo could be mounted in an underfuselage rack.
Though the Ar 195 prototype was flying by 1937 only three were built. The type was unsuccessful against the Fieseler-designed Fi 167.
