The Arado Ar 296 was a design for an improved version of the Arado Ar 96B advanced trainer, to be powered by the Argus As 411 inverted inline engine in place of the similar but less powerful Argus As 410.
The Ar 296 would have been of similar construction to the Ar 96, which was an all-metal aircraft using light alloys. By the time the Ar 296 was being developed these light alloys were a strategic material, in short supply, and so work moved onto the Ar 396, which used as little metal as possible in its design.
