Please add command to edit displayName property of customized vehicles
New, NormalPublic

Description

Arma offers splendid opportunities to customize vehicles on mission level with the help of such commands as setObjectTextureGlobal, removeWeaponGlobal, animate/HideTurret, lockTurret, attachTo, etc.

It would be nice to have a command to edit displayName property of a customized vehicle as well.

Supporting and expanding on this.

Use case: not extensive, but we'd be able to do things like "Qilin" >> "Katie's Qilin" which would be useful for keeping track of specific vehicles, or "AMV-12 Marshall" >> "Patria AMV" without needing a mod for mission-specific stuff.

Proposed syntax:

_vehicle setDisplayName "string";
_vehicle setDisplayNameShort "string";

Optional alt syntax, since I suspect it would be a lot more difficult:

"classname" setDisplayName "string"; // override applies to all vehicles of this class
"classname" setDisplayNameShort "string";
