I usually play as Taiidan, in nostalgia for HW1, and as a result, often experience the extreme weakness of the HW1 fighters (as of now). That itself is a different issue. What I propose is that HW2 fighter and corvette squadrons have a different icon than the single ships do, to help differentiate. At a glance, it is hard to tell that 25 HW1 fighters is an equal match to what appears to be only 5 fighters. Obviously I can tell by looking, and do the math in my head, but I think that it would be a useful addition, especially when looking through the sensors manager.
I was thinking something along these lines:
Maybe they could even represent how many ships are in the squadron? What do you guys think?
