How does this progression move along? Is it a matter of days or towns captured that makes the army get better equipment? If the latter, is it possible to change it to improve with days?

You can ramp up GAME_PROGRESS_MODIFIER in Ja2_Options.ini if you want. Adds a flat bonus to your current progress. You'll find progress calculation settings above that line.
Hit F in tactical view to see your current progress.

It works with V for me. If I press V I see 2/2 progress. Is it possible to progress strictly through killing enemies? Likewise, can I turn progress off? It doesn't feel realistic to have enemy gear improve just because I "progressed." Gear should be based on location/troop types. Can this be modified? How much exactly should I put into GAME_PROGRESS_MODIFER and does it affect existing saves?

Interesting...at higher levels, enemies certainly spawn with good gear, but ambient (non-player-trained) "militia" seem to get chewed up pretty quickly. Does militia/local arsenal not go up along with progression?

not sure if its an active file, but there is a coolness by sector. Also the progress settings can be a %, based on control, kills, exploration etc.. so you can adjust the setting to fit your game style.

I set it to 100. That way troops will have the best equipment depending on type of soldier.
