Default Heavy Weapons Teams Question

Do fire support squads, anti tank support squads and mortar squads count as Artillery, as it does not specifically say to my knowledge.

As in Artillery, as detailed in the rulebook on page 56

I am trying to find out whether guard heavy weapons follow the damage distribution rule (i.e. 1-4 crew, 5-6 gun, gun counts as armour 10 vehichle + is destroyed on any glancing or penetrating hit) and all the other rules that Artillery follow.

No, Guard heavy weapon squads count as one man with the heavy weapon, and one man with a lasgun.
They don&#39;t fall under the "Artillery" rules.

Heavy Mortars and Thudd guns do though. Be aware if that if you&#39;re trying to decide upon some close fire support for your Guard army.

You can still fire it if the ammo-carrier lasgun dude dies. Think of it as an ablative wound.
