No, IAVRs are unguided. That's what sets them apart from GMS/P (and also

the reason why IAVRs aren't affected by the target's ECM).

Sorry, you lost me there. As far as I can see there's no contradiction 
between what I described and the revised mechanic you mentioned... what
was trying to say was that the revised mechanic is probably the best you

could do while still adhering to the standard heavy weapons SG2 to-hit 

My vote would be for replacing *all* the SG2 heavy weapons to-hit rules 
with the corresponding DS mechanics, but the way you phrased your
questions kinda excluded that option...

As long as the smoke doesn't blow back towards the launching vehicle...

Which is one of the reasons why current smoke screens are as wide as
are, covering roughly a 90-degree sector.
