Where the heck is this plane?
It does not show up in any of my AC lists, friend or foe, although the folder is there in PaintSchemes/Skins.{Ar-196-A3}
I have the FB/AEP Gold Pack patched ro 2.01 then 2.04

Seaplanes aren't availabe in the QMB, they can't land on runways. They can be tricked into taking off open water in the FMB through careful use of waypoints, or you could use the Leningrad/Gulf of Finland area map which has special 'water runways' defined on the map. You need to make a mission to see the seaplanes.

Should be a link to some FMB guides in the Sturmovik Essentials thread.

Sorry, can´t help you. I had the same kind of a problem with the Curtiss P-36:s but in opposite order: I was able to use them in QMB, FMB and in online games, but their skinfolders did not exist at all. Yet I had all the available skins for them.

I discussed the matter here at this forum and I tried to create those folders by myself, failed!

AND THEN ONE DAY the skinfolders were there and I HAD NOT RE-INSTALLED THE GAME. It was a mystery for me and I`m afraid it will remain one. I wanted to tell you this because, one never knows if your problem pours forth from the same (for me unknown) reason.

I hope you get the Arado working. Just for sure, I remind you that the Arado 196 IS NOT FLYABLE aircraft.

Edit: Sorry, Ar-196 is not available in QMB
