Grenadiers and Soldados have an increased burst radius and do more damage to buildings.
—In-game description

Incendiary Grenades is a technology in Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs that can be researched by European and American civilizations with access to Grenadiers (British, Dutch, Russians, Swedes, and the United States, with the "Washington's Legion" Home City Card), Fire Thrower (Maltese), Humbaraci (Ottomans), and Soldado (Mexicans) at the Arsenal once the Commerce Age* is reached, if the Advanced Arsenal Home City Card has been sent. Once researched, it increases the siege attack multiplier of grenade troopers against buildings by 15% and the radius of their ranged attack's splash damage by 1, except for Grenadiers and Humbaracis with hand mortars, Soldados, and Giant Grenadiers which get +0.5.

The Middle Guard technology also automatically researches Incendiary Grenades for the French. Since the Definitive Edition, European civilizations without access to Grenadiers or grenade trooper units can research this technology after sending the Grenade Launchers Home City Card.
