It might be that I have to work on my search skills but I have not found any information on how veterancy works in BA. I can see ingame that units get more HP with experience, but what are the rules? Is there a cap on max HP? Is 1 kill = XX HP points? For all units? Are there other changes with higher veterancy? Etc etc.
Seems to me like theres no cap on exp, but after getting the silver star units only gain hp very, very slowly. Once had a golli with almost 10k hp though (used him as a hit & run/repair weapon on the middle on folsomdam), he had something like 2.5 experience I think.
From my observations, ROF (and therefore DPS too) seems to increase too with gained experience.

This is not limited to BA.
XP gain for damaging a unit = 0.1 * experienceMult * damage / target's HP * target's power / attacker's power. XP gain for killing a unit = 0.1 * experienceMult * target's power / attacker's power. Default power is equal to metal cost + energy cost / 60. (This is the only use of "power".) Default experienceMult is 1.0.
Bonus factor = 1 + xp / (xp + 1).
Power multiplier = powerScale * bonus factor. powerScale defaults to 1.0.
HP multiplier = healthScale * bonus factor. healthScale defaults to 0.7.
Rate of fire multiplier = reloadScale * bonus factor. reloadScale defaults to 0.4.
Also weapons get varying accuracy bonuses with XP, but I CBA to describe it exactly here.
Read gamedata/modrules in the mod itself to find the values for that mod.
At default values, you get 0.1 XP for bringing something of your own power down to 0 HP, and another 0.1 XP for landing the killing blow.
At 1 XP, you get half the benefits of being at infinity XP. For example, if you get +20% rate of fire at 1 XP, you'll have +40% rate of fire at infinity XP.
