Sukhoi Su-30 MKI - Purpose of Thrust Vectoring nozzle

This is my first edition explaining Sukhoi MKI's thrust vectoring system. If you want to know what is thrust vectoring?, what are the 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional thrust vectors?, How thrust vector nozzle is controlled? and which other warplanes are using thrust vector system why Sukhoi is the best for thrust vectoring system.
