The first game technically rates you on other factors like killing enemy leaders, aces, tanks, not having one of your own get dropped, etc. You can also get more Royal weapons in later missions by fulfilling certain unlisted objectives. But yeah, the bulk of exp/dct gains is based on turns taken alone.
