Last time I played I had five doomwings intercept 3 thawks. In the end the
thawks took no damage (not even to cause repair), and the doomwings lost 2
units, and the rest had to be repaired.

SHWs clearly ARE affected by BMs. At the beginning of the section on SHWs
where it gives the chart (p.31, I think) for placing blast markers caused by
SHWs it specifies that it refers to the number of SHWs firing before taking
into account assault orders or blast markers. So, obvioulsy, they ARE
affected by BMs.

Besides, Jervis answered the unofficial Q&A that they are affected as an fp 1.
