Default Help with photon grenades on just a shas Ui'

Something recently came up in a discussion at my local store about what would happen with an IC with a frag grenade. I asked what about a Tau firewarrior Shas ui' who bought a photon grenade from the armory and if he was charged? Would it be that when the Firewarriors are charged whoever charged em all loses an attack or just a single guy? I have heard "The grenade only effects that one model" even though the grenade has no effect on my own model. Is there some prescient on what would happen if I had only the Shas ui' with the grenade?

Photon Grenades in the Armoury? That's news to me...

Not sure if you can even do such a thing, but assuming you could, it would work as follows:

All charging models recieve +1 as normal. Any in base to base contact with the Shas'Ui with photon grenade is effected as normal.

Its the same for an IC with a frag - he will strike at I10, but noone else can gain the benefit for it.

Well, I feel stupid you can't get them in the armory... I confused em for EMP grenades.
I should look at my codex next time I bring up a point. Thanks for the help anyways.

Its still a worthwhile question though - as there can be some instances of a Sergeant or IC having grenades his squad doesn't, like a Captain with Frags in a terminator squad, for example.
