The below official image does not have all the controls.
Missing that i know of in addition to whats listed are:

Escape = exit game/mission option

F9 on a Windows PC = Show ingame mini frame rate numbers on the left portion of the screen

Left Control + mouse = cockpit view around your area. You can see working displays on missile load outs and functional heat sinks left

Left Shift+F11 to toggle it on/off. = Removes/shows Hud display

Tab key shows the roster and status.

B key= Battle Map.

What else is out there?

Holding down "Q" will display all your allies data as though you were mousing over them.

backspace to toggle chain fire for your selected weapons group.

\ = Alpha strike
