Adds icons to display certain capabilities of the aircraft

Aircraft status

Instead of a custom "status" text, you can use the aircraft rating system. The overall status is auto-calculated and will be displayed. If you use the aircraft rating system, remove the |status = line.

See Aircraft rating system for instructions on how to rate your aircraft.

Ready icons

Several icons are available to indicate certain capabilities of the aircraft. Separate them with slashes. They can be in any order. For example, using airrefuel, bombable, dualcontrol and rembrandt will add the page to the categories Air refueling ready, Bombable aircraft, Dual control aircraft and Rembrandt aircraft respectively. The full list is:

|ready = airrefuel/bombable/dualcontrol/rembrandt/canvas/checklist/tutorials
