  Three mobile suits per team is standard for the Zeons (grouped into
squadrons of 9 or 12 mobile suits). Federation teams are supposed to
comprise five mobile suits/Balls/fighters, but all the teams we see in
the animation (esp. in 0083) are four-unit teams. It's possible that
Federation ground forces use a four-unit team structure inherited from
tank companies, while their space forces inherit a five-unit team
structure from space fighter squadrons... after all, the Federal Forces
do seem to be split into two or more branches.
