Sure.  Depending on your PSB, IAVR can be pretty lightweight.

Depends on vegetation, cover, and distance from the attackers to the
kill zone, as well as the reaction of the dismounts and their ability
to get to the enemy.

Once the artillery disengaged the travel lock and started direct
firing at the attackers, it would be pretty ugly.  If they can kill
the enemy in the first turn they win.  Otherwise they are going to
loose.	Ambushes of targets with this much mismatch in capabilities
are either over quickly or don't work out real well.

Nomenclature is entirely dependant on the nation's traditions. 
However, that is not the case for any current major power that I can
think of.
