As Taliban parades captured weapons, US still trying to gauge scope of damage
By all accounts, the militants have captured a huge trove of advanced equipment, vehicles, aircraft and guns supplied to Afghan forces over the years to the tune of billions
Washington is still attempting to gauge the scope of United States weaponry and technology that have fallen into the hands of the Taliban following Afghanistan’s fall to the militants, though it is believed to be considerable.
Materiel the Islamist group is believed to have gained includes hundreds of thousands of assault rifles, thousands of armored vehicles, dozens of aircraft, tanks, artillery, sniper rifles, night-vision goggles and much more.
Some analysts believe the capture of such vast amounts of sophisticated firepower, while representing a loss of billions of dollars in funds and embarrassing to the US, is mostly a public relations coup for the Taliban. A lack of expertise and resources will prevent the group from using the most advanced weaponry in any effective manner, they argue.
