The US military disabled scores of aircraft and armored vehicles as well as a high-tech rocket defense system at the Kabul airport before it left Monday, a US general said.

Central Command head General Kenneth McKenzie said 73 aircraft that were already at Hamid Karzai International Airport were “demilitarized,” or rendered useless, by US troops before they wrapped up the two-week evacuation of the Taliban-controlled country.

Those aircraft will never fly again… They’ll never be able to be operated by anyone,” he said.

“Most of them are non-mission capable to begin with. But certainly they’ll never be able to be flown again.”

He said the Pentagon, which built up a force of nearly 6,000 troops to occupy and operate Kabul’s airport when the airlift began on August 14, left behind around 70 MRAP armored tactical vehicles — which can cost up to $1 million apiece — that it disabled before leaving, and 27 Humvees.

The vehicles “will never be used again by anyone,” he said


The US also left behind the C-RAM system — counter rocket, artillery, and mortar — that was used to protect the airport from rocket attacks.

The system helped fend off a five-rocket barrage from the Islamic State on Monday.

“We elected to keep those systems in operation up until the very last minute,” before the last US aircraft left, McKenzie said.

“It’s a complex procedure and time-intensive procedure to break down those systems. So we demilitarize those systems so that they’ll never be used again.”

There's no such thing in science.Once you can build it, it can be replicated.
The US make these mistakes all the time by underestimating others. If anyone had told them 20 years ago that they will lose the war in Afghanistan, they will not believe it. As we type here, the Chinese now have the strongest navy in the world and they have built better versions of the US artillery

They should have just destroyed those things . Leaving it is irresponsible and a miscalculation. The Talibans are not stupid. Even if they can't independently rebuild it, they can partner their neighbours Iran, Russia and China to understand these advanced technology through reverse Engineering.
US should wake up, others are not sleeping o. Knowledge and terror business has been democratized .

Sleepy joe like chess game. Though there were some miscalculation on exit strategy.
Most equipments left by US directly or through Afghanistan army would be difficult for talibans to use or maintain. America military hardware and software are most expensive to procure or maintain. That is the main reason Ak47 is more popular than M16.
Most uS military gadgets have trackers. Using them will make talibans vulnerable to America electronic surveillance.
It is either talibans sell those equipments or contract American companies to maintain on huge cost and on US terms and conditions.

The Afghanistan army are very stup1d to have all these equipment and arsenal but still lost to Talibans in Hilux trucks.

I guess the Taliban needed it more than they did.

On the flip, it's possible this was all a part of the game plan to empower the Talibans by cunningly leaving these armaments, while claiming to have disabled them.

Science and Technology is not any nation's exclusive preserve. It's a matter of time before they fix back these equipments. I dey suspect Joe Biden.

With the weapons left behind, the Taliban now has the capacity to invade any country in Africa,
more than 70% of Asian countries as well as 30% of European countries.

It was a stupid move to pull out with speed, a gradual pullout would have been better.

Medicine after death.
Question is, how many Chinese engineers would it take to get them back in shape? Few I guess.
How much will it cost? A few million dollars
How much does the Taliban have in excess? Billions of Dollars
How much does the Taliban generate from opium sales in Weeks? Hundreds of million dollars
Have China partnered with the new Taliban? Yes, immediately after USA surrender. Infact the first country to do so.
So you see, the USA just made a mockery of themselves

They were all acquired with Afghan funds. You think US is stupid. Secondly, soon and very soon most of the equipment will be useless due to lack of maintenance.
