Thx for the links.
Yeah I got curious as I have no recollection of it from my own Amiga days (1988 onwards).

Here is an irony speaking of the Suncom F15: I had the Tac-2 for my Amiga (still have two of them) and later when I got a PC in 1996 I got the F15 stick but I had no idea it was the same maker. Small world...for joysticks!

Suncom Joy Sensor - Will it work on Amiga?

I did some digging. The switch in the middle seems to activate 4 or 8 direction mode ... so for Amiga only the 4 direction mode makes sense.

The touch elements seem really to be what we are used to now: capacitive and not resistive. no pressing is needed.

In an Atari Forum it is described as:
"I loved using this controller and it was surprisingly responsive(from what I remember 2 decades ago!)."

Suncom was really innovative as it seems:
in the F-15 Joystick they even used Hall-sensors for deduction of movement
