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.

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?

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).

Hi Anvil guys and players can you give some more information about the Grenadier Class  ???

I wish we have grenades for the class 1 for a grenadier each.

If they add grenades in game I don't think they'll be recharged with batteries as pictured.  ::)

Grenades weren't really in use at this point in time. The Grenadiers were often looked upon as elite units, like the Guards. Actually some Grenadier units became Guard units during and before this time period.

Yeah Viriathus is right the Grenadiers were looked upon as elite units and had nothing to do with grenades. But being elite units they became guards an example of this is the "Grenadier Guads" formed during the War agaist Cromwell they're duty to protect Charles II.  :)

If they add grenades they need to set the game back a century or so. Frederick the Great anybody?
Sure somebody has shown a picture of a Napoleonic "grenade", but records and everything else in the era do not show them or mention them. Where earlier they were certainly mentioned all the time I assume. Perhaps they were used in siege warfare at this time. If you want grenades you go without horse artillery and other advances.
