All-metal construction was employed, the forward fuselage being a welded steel-tube structure with light alloy skinning and the aft fuselage being a stressed-skin monocoque, and the single-spar wing having light alloy and fabric skinning. All movable control surfaces were fabric covered, and catapult points were provided. Side-by-side seating was provided for the instructor and pupil with dual controls, and for wireless operator and navigator training provision was made for a third seat aft. Powerplant was a 450 hp Argus As 410C twelve-cylinder air-cooled inverted V-engine.
The trials with the prototypes were extremely successful, and initially a first batch of 65 Ar 199 A-0 pre-production aircraft was planned, however, the requirement for a training seaplane of this type was later abandoned and reportedly 26 aircraft were completed. Besides for training, these also were used for search and rescue, most of them in Scandinavia.
