The fins are slightly bigger and have flat tops, while on the Su-30 used by other countries, the top of the vertical fin are with sloping tips. The other noticeable difference between the different Su-30s, is that Su-30MK2 lacks the canards seen on the Russian /and others/ versions. Venezuela uses its Flankers for various missions, from maritime patrols and anti-ship tasks, to air-to-air missions and combat air patrols.
