L4 Grasshopper, became one of the most feared aircraft on WW II battlefields.  L4 was used as an artillery spotter by US Army. It is said the unarmed Grasshopper commanded more firepower than larger and heavily armed B-17 Flying Fortress.  When the German soldiers saw a L-4 approaching their position, they knew it was time to move because very soon they would be under fire from allied artillery
