Seriously? Are vision-impaired species equipped with their engineers' googles?
Dr34
Flash Bang (Dreadnought spell) is replaced by Flash Bomb (if unsuccessful, reduces the mp of the targeted unit by 25%) and costs 7 CP (was 8 CP)
Then, what about Stun Grenade/Bomb (to feel less anachronistic)?

I'm personnally against giving Night Vision to all the Scouts (and scouts) but I'm seriously outvoted. :( Hopefully players in the extended groups discussing balance will reject that but my hopes are low.
Maybe for the name change for Flash Bomb but we'd need more people supporting that. Maybe open a thread on the Steam forum? (though I doubt many will respond)
