Actually it does. Since the 70s military Jet Trainers either look like the British Aerospace Hawk or the Dassault/Dornier Alpha jet. Still do

Russian MiG-AT first flight 1996

Indian HAL HJT-36 first flight 2003

Shiny, expensive, high-tech weapon systems are great for countries that need them and can afford them.

Sudan is not one of those countries- any opponents it is likely to face will be even lower tech than the Sudanese military. And Sudan simply does not have the military infrastructure to maintain any advanced weapon system.

We have to remember that most ongoing conflicts in the world today involve mostly light infrantry with some artillery and maybe a little armored support. Only a handful of nations in the world have the ability (and need) to support an advanced military.
