The Sukhoi Su-30 Flanker-C is a twin-engine, two-seat super maneuverable fighter aircraft

It is a multirole fighter for all-weather, air-to-air and air-to-surface deep interdiction missions.

Most noteworthy the Su-30 started out as an internal development project in the Sukhoi Su-27 family by Sukhoi.

The Su-30 has two distinct version branches, manufactured by competing organizations

KnAAPO and the Irkut Corporation, both of which come under the Sukhoi group’s umbrella.

KnAAPO manufactures the Su-30MKK and the Su-30MK2

In addition China, Indonesia, Uganda, Venezuela, and Vietnam purchased these jets

due to KnAAPO’s involvement from the early stages of developing Su-35, these are basically a two-seat version of the mid-1990s Su-35.

China selected an older and lighter radar in which there were no canards because they want to increase payload

It is a fighter with both air supremacy and attack capabilities, generally similar to the U.S. F-15E.

Irkut traditionally served the Soviet Air Defense and, in the early years of Flanker development, was given the responsibility of manufacturing the Su-27UB, the two-seat trainer version.

When India showed interests in the Su-30, Irkut offered the multirole Su-30MKI, which originated as the Su-27UB modified with avionics appropriate for fighters.

Along with its ground-attack capabilities, the series adds features for the air-superiority role, such as canards, thrust-vectoring, and a long-range phased-array radar.

Its derivatives include the Su-30MKM, MKA, and SM for Malaysia, Algeria, and Russia, respectively.

In conclusion, The Russian Air Force operates several Su-30s and has ordered the Su-30SM version.
