Does the Orc's Mob rule also apply for shooting?

I'm reading the rules again, and it seems that the support for shooting is worked out in the same fashion as combat, which seems to me as if the Mob rule does work in shooting.

Also, on the syubject of support, nowhere in the rules does it limit the number 'ranks' that can be applied. Am I right in thinking that I could have a Formation of 5 companies that is 2 Companies wide, and 3 deep and gain 4 support attacks?

Thanks in advance.

Well, shooting uses the term "Supporting Fire" and combat uses the term "Supporting Attacks."

The Mob Rule just says "supporting." It doesn't refer to either shooting or combat specifically, so I don't see why it shouldn't apply to both.
