Any country that wishes to defend its airspace must have the most modern and sophisticated fighter jets available. The 5th generation fighter planes are now the most advanced, with the most advanced missiles, powerful engines, and stealth capabilities.
However, several countries have already begun developing 6th generation fighter jets, while 4th generation fighters continue to be the core of the majority of air forces worldwide.

Fourth-generation fighters can be revamped with latest technologies to make them more competitive on today's battlefields. 4+ or 4++ generation fighter jets are the terms used to describe these aircraft.
The Sukhoi Su-30SM is the most recent development of the Russian Air Force's most famous fighter jet, the Su-27. The Su-30 is a 4+ generation fighter aircraft with modern radar, avionics, weapons systems, and much more, and it improves on the base model in every way.
Many countries, including India, Vietnam, Armenia, and others, have had great success with various Su-30 models. The Su-30 SM builds on it by adding a more powerful radar, updated avionics, and, most notably, a thrust-vectoring system that allows jet engine nozzles to rotate for unrivaled maneuverability. The Su-30SM is one of the most maneuverable and sophisticated fighter jets in the world as a result of it.
