If so, who employed it?

Yes, at least once as far as I know.
Of course, that was against MiG-29s in the Eritrea/Ethiopia conflict, so it's not necessarily the best test!
This same conflict is the basis for the GR expansion, Desert Siege, although there aren't any Flankers or Fulcrums in it.

Good stuff! It's funny how it's become nearly a legend without a record to back it up. A beautiful plane.....
