A friend points out that help for Nuclear units currently says:

  • May acquire veteran status.
    • Veterans have increased strength in combat.

But of course nukes' attack behaviour isn't affected by attack strength, and they have no defence, so this isn't true.

Could add an extra check for UTYF_NUCLEAR in the help. That would leave us with just "May acquire veteran status", with no consequence, which is accurate but silly (and the subject of bug #22164).

(Alternatively, I wonder if it's worth adding a ruleset sanity check against units which can get meaningless veteran status?)
