Just want to verify, there is no to hit, you just roll your HE for hits.

You roll the no of HE dice listed to hit on 4+
So a gun rolls say 5 dice needing 4+ to hit then your opponent (or you) rolls the results at 1 less cover level.

EDIT Just to be clear no 'to hit' roll in the same was as you would do for AP against vehicles - it is a different mechanism for HE- straight 4+ no modifiers for range or grade of infantry.

Do other minuses to hit count, such as "damaged gun site" on the vehicle damage table, or -1 to hit for smoke grenades?

No. It's a straight 4+, good for winkling out Elites from cover.

No gunsights needed for firing at a house 😉
