Must fire support be the same attack as the type of card engaging the Axis target?

For example, you assault a Pz.Jg 25R (Armor, attack 2/defense 2) with a Private (Infantry, Attack 1, defense 1). In this case, the Private has no effect as he does not have armor-piercing capability. If you support him with an 81mm M1 Howitzer, however, would the fire support of +3 be considered armor piercing for the attack, and defeat the 25R, or must the engaging unit have armor piercing to start?

It looks like there's two questions.

No fire support does not need to be the same kind of fire as the other attackers.

But no you cannot kill armor units with anything but anti armor fire.
You may still attack them with non anti armor cards to prevent getting a disorganized card. But you cannot kill armor unless you have enough anti armor factors.

Yes you can send a private with a Garrand to go annoy a tank. You won't be seeing him again but you do not get a disorganized card.

Yes you can send a private with a Garrand to attack an armored car and spot for the Thunderbolt that shoots armor piercing rockets.

I hope this helps.
Enjoy the game!

To understand. You throw an anti armor as the first
Card and fire support it with a soft target rifle.
Can this work?

You may use any combination you like as long as you take appropriate casualties and only use anti- armor factors to kill armored targets.
