According to information compiled by the American media, Black Hawk helicopters and A-29 Super Tucano attack planes are among the equipment seized by the Taliban.
Photos are posted on social media showing Taliban fighters with M4 rifles and M16 rifles, as well as American-made Humvees and armored vehicles.
Experts say it is not possible to use advanced planes without training, and they point out that the Taliban’s capture of US equipment is an important propaganda tool.
In contrast, small arms seized by the Taliban are of greater concern.
The United States has spent $ 83 billion on training and equipping Afghan security forces over the past 20 years.
According to the 2017 US Court of Auditors report, Afghan forces received approximately 76,000 vehicles, 600,000 guns, 163,000 communications equipment and 208 aircraft in 2003-2016.
At least 46 planes used by Afghan forces to escape Kabul last weekend are believed to be in Uzbekistan.
