No - Helpful, but not necessary.
Difficult to be definite. Smoke would come almost at once from anything flamed e.g. bushes, houses etc, even if smokeless fuel used. The smoke does occasionally blind the commander and gunner, but not for long. It can also protect them to some extent. On the whole would say not vitally important.
