In version 1.2 of September Patch there is an Experimental change to increase grenadiers durability, and im glad they are they are addressing this issue. However, I don't think a vet 3 damage reduction is going to solve the problem so i have a different idea make Grenadiers a 5 model squad.
squad size: 4
weapon damage: 16
total damage 64 (5 shots to kill)*
reinforce cost per model: 30 (total cost if squad is reduced to 1 model: 90)
squad size: 5
weapon damage: 14
total damage 70 (6 shots to kill)*
reinforce cost per model: 26 (total cost if squad is reduced to 1 model: 104)
*Assuming all shots hit and the target is not in green cover
