Description

ArmA2 introduced chaos in team bar. In Operation Flashpoint and ArmA vehicle crews were grouped under single icon, making it easy to distinguish them from others and maintain effective team management.

ArmA 1 team bar had [F11]-[F12] 'scrolling' that was needed, but was made not flexible enough. You knew that your 30-men team has been reduced to 4, but you couldn't have all of them on one screen because they were from different dozens.
In ArmA 2 you have to stare into numbers to inspect who's manning whose vehicle. Irritating as much as difficult.

To give some idea how useful team bar could work, please see attached screenshot:
