Another recent postcard find is this image of an Arado-95 from below and the side. This one is modified to be a sea-plane and carries a torpedo. Also note it appears to have a canopy for the crew (of two?)

The canopy was standard (2 crew indeed):

Your caption: "Arado Ar 95 Seeflugzeug als Torpedoträger", couldn´t find anything on the history of this special plane.
