Grenadiers of the period never carried grenades. --That alone is reason enough for an unequivocal: No!

Just like NTW, let the grenadier class get 1 or 2 grenades with a limited throw time if they are to late they blow up  ;D

Unfortunately they did. Especially in siege battles they used the hand grenades to blow up the gates and harrash the buildings.



There's an HG which crafted in 1840s means still using at late.

How was it used then?

I myself actually dont have to much knowledge on the topic anyway.

Grenadiers of the era never carried grenades.
In French regiments, they formed 'Flank Companies'
--veterans whom could be massed for assaults & sieges.

No one threw grenades.

The whole idea of it makes no sense.

In which situations exactly and by whom?

Chillin' out maxin' annexin' all cool and all, Shooting some Spaniards outside of the Madrid
When a couple of Austrians who were up to no good, Started invading allies in my neighborhood
I got in one little war and Britain got scared and said, "You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Saint Helena."

I doubt the grenadiers will carry grenades. Possibly another class will, though I'd like for them to be picked up like cannonballs and dropped (you can see explosive devices next to the cannonballs on some coastal siege maps).
