When creating a new squad in game, you get a random squad type. If this wasn't the one you wanted by coincidence, you have to wait for quite a bit for the "Change squad type" button to appear in the "Squad" menu, then select your preferred type and then respawn. This is often horribly frustrating, because you risk that other players immediately join your squad and vote against the squad type you had in mind when you created the squad in the first place. Also because it takes many seconds to wait for the "Change squad type" button to appear, and respawning. What I suggest is that when you click "New squad" you get to pick the type you want before the squad gets created, eliminating the problem.
We're only left with a potential problem then, that is if you make your squad and somebody immediately joins and steals the soldier class you wanted. That could probably be solved as well, but it's not that important.
