There is a fantastic video of the central float version of the Arado 196.

Shure, but would you rather be burned to death or swim for it. Any way to my knowledge this has never been shown as a photo in german documents or books.

I will be posting some photos of various 196 shortly.

Cheers TASSE.

I have never seen a photo of a v-2. Perhaps it was the aircraft in the video.

More to come.
