I don't think that is an Arado. I believe that's an Henschel Hs 123 dive bomber.

greetings asturwaffen, fdewaele is right, it is a Henschel Hs 123 dive bomber, but guessing from its camouflage the photo might have been taken early in the war, probably this plane might have belongd to the Luftgeschwader 2 maybe during the campaign in Poland.

Its a Henschel 123 allright - but look at that swastika on the fin - nope this is a pre-war picture.

It is an Hs 123.

I have seen a pic of an Hs 123 code 52 + H? identified as being part of 2./StG 162 Immelmann.

The camouflage of the aircraft shown looks pre WW2 in style and StG 162 was re numbered pre war.
