Default SU-33 carrier ops, AAR, a strike, BVR, and dogfighting.. all using an Xbox controller

In my journey to research which aircraft are adequately usable with only an Xbox One controller, I thought I'd shoot straight for the most complicated FC3 aircraft and work my way down. Turns out... it's fully capable of:

- Carrier Ops
- Air-to-air Refueling
- Ground attack
- BVR (EO, RWS/TWS, Freq select, radar elevation)
- Dogfighting (also helmet mounted site)

And all this strictly using only the gamepad, with the exception of radio calls to contact tanker.

Nice! Shows that a $X00 HOTAS setup isn't strictly required to have fun & do well in the game
