Which rules are these? Some house rules on the web that give the OUDF 
special abilities? Or the well known 'problem' of firing one rifle 
and multiple support weapons (SAWs, IAVRs, PPGs, etc.)?

Yes. You can fire one or more IAVRs in support of of your normal 
rifle fire.

Only if you're firing at least one normal infantry weapon. Otherwise 
it takes one action to fire each IAVR.

No. The standard weapon is the single rifle you're firing.

You've missed the fact that you must fire at least one normal weapon.

Also, IAVRs are one shot weapons. Your squad has wasted any chance to 
take out any enemy armour that might be lurking around unseen.
