In late 2005, a Russian mineral exploration company discovered a series of large oilfields in southern Sudan. Sudan’s Military government, with its ability to hold the newly revitalised Sudanese People’s Liberation Army at bay beginning to falter, decided this new source of oil was its one sure-fire way to hold onto power.

You are also very wrong on this too. This plane might look impressive but these have had more crashes then the F-22. The thrust vectoring is only first generation and can only move in two dimensions. The F-22 is already in the 3rd generation of development and boast better engines, advanced targeting system(stand off distance and the ability to engage multiple targets at once), and Superior maneuverability. This plane is already obsolete compared it's western counterparts and the Russian government can't afford to purchase them so they are made for export only. You really need to consult somebody with better knowledge of this subject because the descriptions are full of convoluted facts and BS.

Where did you get info about those crashes?
Superior maneuverability - wrong. The main difference of Su-30+ family from any other plane is their specific super-maneuverability thanks to this very thrust vectoring. Sometimes you have to sacrifice with one parameter to increase another. Same goes for Su and F-22. Of course Su can do different tricks that will make F-22 crash in the air, but you can't do them on a really high speed, so Su series had to sacrifice speed to increase maneuverability. The F-22 stronger side is his speed, the speed that Su-35 gains with entering Forsage mode F-22 has as a cruise speed and here he surely outruns his Russian counterWHAT. No, not counterpart. Su-35 and Su-37 are 4++ generation fighters. F-22 is a 5th generation fighter.
Comment was made in 2009, now it's 2014. Let us wait for PAK FA or Chinese J-20 and fairly compare it to F-22 or F-35 If you like as a 5th generation fighters.

it'd be interesting to see if the nozzles move when it flies then, and it can't be an Su30, coz that has 2 seats, this only has one if I'm seeing right, which is true of the Su37 if I'm remembering right, most of the Su-30 variants also don't have canard wings (the little ones at the front), i dunno about BF2's Su-30 though
