The Air Ministry wanted a range of 2,150 kilometers (1,340 miles), and so to reduce weight Arado proposed that the E370 would take off on a wheeled tricycle trolley that would be dropped by parachute once the aircraft took to the air.
Arado projected a maximum speed of 780 KPH (485 MPH), an operating altitude of almost 11,000 meters (36,000 feet), and a maximum range of 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles).
Arado also investigated a number of new-design, swept-wing follow-ons to the Ar-234, but since the company was overstretched to get the Ar-234 into production there were no resources to seriously pursue such projects.
Since the requirements were high speed, a bomb load of at least 4000 kg (8818 lbs) and a range of 5000 km (3107 miles), it was realized that the project could best be fulfilled by using a flying wing design with a laminar high speed profile.
The Arado Ar E.555-1 was constructed entirely of metal (both steel and Duraluminum), and was basically a flying wing with a short, circular cross section forward fuselage where the pressurized cockpit was located.
On December 28, 1944, Arado was ordered to cease all work on the E.555 series, probably due to the worsening war situation, and the need to concentrate aircraft development and production on fighters.
