High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Arado E.381 (Kleinstj ger - smallest fighter) was a proposed parasite fighter aircraft. Conceived by Arado Flugzeugwerke in December 1944 for Germanys Luftwaffe during World War II, the E.381 was to have been carried aloft by and launched from an Arado Ar 234 mother aircraft. It would then have activated its rocket engine, which would have propelled it to attack Allied (mainly American and British) bombers. Development was cancelled due to lack of funds and official support.
