Default annihilation kill points

The annihilation rules tell me in the rule book that you receive a kill point for each enemy unit destroyed, a character, and his retinue. Does this mean vehicles count as a single kill point, dedicated transports count as a single kill point, a squadron of vehicles count as a single kill point, and HQ unit count as a single kill point too?

That is true. Every individual unit is its own kill point.

Can't IG players just merge squads?

I'm not 100% sure. It could have change with the 5th edition codex, but under the old 4th edition a command squad was worth anywhere between 2 to 7 kill points, depending on the built.

In the new 5th ed codex, basic infantry squads (not Command, nor Heavy or Special) can be merged, allowing you to make your 10 man units into upwards of 50 man.

But does it become 1KP or does it remain at 2-5KP (depending on how many are merged)?

Yes since upon the destruction of the Devilfish, they form their own unit. However drones attached to commander/fire wariror/suits are not worth KP.

They become a single unit for all purposes. It's like a reverse Combat Squad.

The command squad for your hq and and troops count as 2kps each. If you take a retinue than it's 2 kps. Splitting a troop squad for marines in combat squads will take a 1 kp squad into 2 squads worth 1 kp each.

With platoon squads an individual squad is worth a kp. So taking 5 squads you'll have 5 kps with 1 squad worth 1 kp a piece. You can merge the 5 squads into 1 big squad which would mean the 5 squads in now worth 1 kp.
