Napoleonic Era is a renowned, fan-made modification for Age of Empires 3 and its expansions The Warchiefs and The Asian Dynasties. The mod intends to accurately illustrate the time from 1555-1815 by greatly expanding and reworking the game with new units, buildings, maps, sounds, music and civilizations. The mod has been founded in January 2006 by Alexander Fleger and is being continued by Peter Piepenburg since February 2010. It is still one of the most anticipated mods for Age of Empires III in the whole world.

That can not be said with certainity. The Austrian grenadiers were surely not the best, you'd then have to refer to the Hungarian grenadiers in Austrian service (that makes a difference in fact), who were known to be physically tough guys. But even the best bodybuilder can be shot by a bullet, thus, there simply is no best grenadier "in time" (NE is from 1555-1815, just an info, that's a *long* time..). They were among the best with others, that's why Austrian grenadiers get a RG upgrade and that's good the way it is.

Well any way were AI won`t use them is good to me. Grenades simply weren`t that important part of time. Line Infantry was.
modern tank ain`t nearly that scary what Line Infantry was in that time. Becouse you know that you can destroy tank if you plant some charges, but how to destroy line if cannons or volleys can`t break it?

You don't sound very educated. If you knew anything about how wars are actually fought you would know that simply planting "some charges" would only immobilize a tank at best, unless you have some monstrous supply of explosives and the tank isn't actually OPERATING. And you said that line infantry were very scary compared to cannons firing into them? You sound dumb. Modern tanks are masterpieces of devestation, by the way. Line infantry tactics were idiotic at best. Also, if cannons and volleys can't break a line of infantry, then you are missing with your cannons or volleys. :)

You always wanted Grenadiers to be really kick-ass? Well, play NE. In the future releases Grenadiers won't throw Grenades anymore (only at buildings). They'll basically be elite musketeers. Additionally you can equip them with these ... awesome and .. devastating grenade rifles (after you researched these in the Arsenal of course). Now Grenadiers will be pure fun!

The amount of smoke will be reduced to ensure a good performance, but it won't look less brutal! ;)
