This is a feature in many RTS and is very useful to quickly and accurately assert a unit composition (for squads or an army) and also to easily count all units of a single kind (e.g. harvesters). It would bring benefits to both players and spectators.

I have made a quick mockup of what this could look like:
OpenRA-selection-contents

The bottom right corner of the screen (or just below the sidebar) seems like a suitable position for such a widget. Or it can be placed in a tab on the sidebar (like in CNC3).

I really like this idea.

As for placement: I think it would be neat if this could be integrated into the sidebar. Not as a tab in the production section, but as a separate section just below and flush with the production section. It would have borders and other chrome consistent with the rest of the sidebar.

I don't know if this fits within the scope, but I think it would be really nice if we can also combine this with a proper GUI for control groups. So you would have a row (or column or double row, whatever fits best) of buttons labelled 1-9 alongside the unit selection panel in the sidebar. These could be individually selected or deselected to add or subtract the contents of the control groups to your current selection. Or perhaps make them act like tabs so you can cycle between different control groups and see their contents in the selection panel while keeping your current ad-hoc selection in a 10th tab.

Where would the perf text go?
