Ok, I understand now. However, in reality, a general might not know that specific units were good in specific areas [due to experience], unless he observed them in action. [He could always click them in battle and see their stats]. So, I think that that is actually a point for reality.
The picking up equipment idea sounds fine, it could add experience and then also cosmetic variances to the group. Overall - I don't think it practical to keep track of equipment besides its cosmetic effects - the only practical way I can think of it being implemented is through experience.
