The Ar 231 was a small reconnaissance floatplane, build in easily detachable sections, to be stored on an U-boat. The Ar 231 was a parasol-wing design, but for easier storage the right wing was attached lower than the left wing, and the center section was angled. The Ar 231 could be stored in six minutes, but performance and handling were bad. Six built.
