The bigSprite number rules. :D

I wonder if it's not too light though... With Weight of 12, I can see soldiers tossing it at significant distances.

perhaps a good ruleset addition to add into the game would be a max range for grenade types? you know... so you can't go round punting HE packs like a football

That would be illogical: if my soldier has 60 Strength, and the item weighs 12, throwing should be easy.

The only two ways I can see to resolve this problem are:
1) Making sure all relevant items are properly heavy.
2) Coding in a new "Arm & Deploy" action, which forces you to leave the item on the ground (though you'd probably still be able to throw it afterwards, so it doesn't really solve anything).

XCOM is always put in an offensive situation (progress forward and securize), so proximity explosives need be deployed in an unsafe chokepoint. If a soldier needs to go very close to deploy this device, it limits a lot the usability.

No doubt. However, tossing huge explosive backpacks across the battlefield has its downsides in game immersion department.
