How does it work on Vehicles and protomechs?

It simply does 3d6 damage to either unit type, as detailed on page 139.

Yes, the damage source is heat.  Vs mechs it causes 2d6 heat, vs units that don't track  heat, this becomes 3d6 damage from heat.  Certain BAs are immune to this heat damage.

Namely, BAs with Fire Resistant Armor.
