I like the idea, but I'd gladly give a barrel of proximatey grenades for a single alien one. For me, they have always worked a heck of a lot better. But, like I said, Ido like the idea of more alien options.
Write up some more ideas, with more details, and post em in the Tech forum. Maybe we can get some solid ideas down on paper and see where they lead...

Aliens get blaster bombs, which are way more dangerous. Especially with an increased AI in xenocide they're going to be killers and you'll be really scared to enter alien bases and warships.

Great for UFO cleanups.
Drop a flashbang in the door.
Rush your people in and take them out.
Of course the aliens could have something similar: "Mind bomb" - Which is a kind of PSI bomb, giving everyone in its effective radius a form of psionic attack.
The practical result would be to drain the effected for TUs for one turn or more.
Flashbangs would effect everyone.
Ailen-produced equivalent could only effect humans.
X-Com researched version could be made to only effect aliens.
Higher-level aliens and soldiers would be able to resist these effects, perhaps some special armor/training for the soldiers?
Edit: OOps... I noticed someone else had mentioned flashbangs already...
