the point is,it does not look like 2008.

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.
