Military Review

Examples of equipment and technology destroyed by the US military when leaving Afghanistan are given


For a long period of time, the American command has been thinking about how to deal with equipment and equipment, which may be difficult to remove from Afghanistan. In particular, the option of transferring them to the Afghan security forces, including the country's armed forces, was considered. However, the Pentagon ultimately abandoned this option. The reason for the refusal was "the lack of confidence that the equipment will not fall into the hands of the opponents of the United States."

As a result, it was decided to destroy some equipment and equipment during the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

To date, the US military in Afghanistan has already destroyed almost 1,5 thousand units of special equipment and technology. Some examples of what was destroyed are also named. It turned out that we are talking about the components of computer systems and communication centers, which "it was not possible to dismantle without causing damage." Also, the destruction is exposed to military equipment, which, under certain circumstances, was damaged or broke during operation. This technique is in need of expensive repairs, so it was decided to simply get rid of it. Also, ammunition with an expiring operational life is destroyed. The equipment destroyed by the Americans includes, for example, several damaged Humvee armored vehicles, which were not repaired for a long time and were either in special hangars or in open areas.

The reports of American resources say that the bulk of American equipment and military equipment from Afghanistan is exported using aviation facilities, including military transport aircraft and helicopters.

Recall that Joe Biden promised to withdraw the contingent from Afghanistan by September 11, 2021. Trying to keep up with the United States in this regard and their NATO partners, whose contingents are also on Afghan territory.

      So the Americans do not come to build, but to destroy and kill. The Nazis also did not build anything, only destroyed.

      Durumbarak bridge
      Built in 2012, the 100-meter suspension pedestrian bridge has only been in satisfactory condition for several years. Due to active use by local residents, by 2020, some of its support cables were damaged, as were the supporting concrete structures. Despite the efforts of the authorities to maintain the condition of the bridge, it requires major repairs.

      Kandahar Medical Storage
      The active use of the object was the result of its natural wear and tear. By 2020, some of the windows were knocked out on it, the climate control system needed to store medicines in the right conditions was broken, and the insulation of the doors was broken.

      Herat Agricultural College and Teaching Irrigation System
      This facility has been in operation since 2017 and is maintained in good condition by its management. However, the inspectorate found that the educational irrigation system does not always function as the university does not have the resources to use it regularly.

      Jade Glass Factory and Industrial Park "West Mazar-i-Sharif"
      Although the owner maintains the plant in good condition, the plant has not been operating since the construction date due to a lack of electricity. The Afghan government was reluctant to provide fuel to provide it.

      Local residents use the adjacent territories for agricultural work.

      Cashmere goat farm and laboratory
      The farm and laboratory are currently abandoned, and the equipment has been removed from them.

      Local officials said that the owners had to move all the property to another site, as the space built according to the American project was not enough for the efficient operation of the enterprises.

      The same fate befell a number of other infrastructure projects seemingly planned to help Afghanistan. Based on previous reports and examining a sample of 60 sites, US officials tried to find the root causes of the problems.

      You can't take away military infrastructure ...

        Buildings in the style of Nif-Nif and Nuf-Nuf, one-two-season. Although in the States they build it like that. Capital construction is not held in high esteem and is expensive there ...

      Equipment, 1500 pieces, destroyed ...
      But in reality? There are also spare parts, component parts, and some of them are still fully operational.

      "Eliminate" is the best way to hide the ends in the water. We recall the explosions at ammunition depots in Europe and Ukraine.

      Acts have been signed - and that's it, this weapon no longer officially exists. No cost and profit.

      The Americans are leaving over 25000 PMCs in Afghanistan. At the same time, not being responsible for the actions of PMCs, they finance them, which means they are controlled. The salary of the former specialists from the "fur seals", "Delta", rangers reaches over $ 600 a day. There are many applicants from Eastern Europe, especially in recent years there are many Ukrainians who wish. I don't know if the Taliban will break the PMC, but it will definitely be hot there yes

    Humvees are those technologies that should not get to the enemy? And then the Taliban, unlike the Houthis, who abandon them as unnecessary and sometimes burn them, will set up production and come hunting in America?)

    Whatever it was, but the emergence of amers without the destruction of the Taliban is not a very favorable situation for us, and they know about it. the Taliban will regain power in the country.
    I can assume that our military (VKS) assistance to the democratic government of Afghanistan is not far off.

      The fact of the matter is that now it will be our headache, we did not supply enough equipment and ammunition for them when the Taliban first came, and we supplied those with whom they had fought before.

    Recently, the video was seen, after the end of WWII, the Americans left a base in the Pacific Ocean (an island colony of France). It is long and troublesome to take out material values, greedy people will not give gifts to the natives, and as a result they built a ramp from the shore. Now there is an underwater attraction on the island, a monument to the greed of Americans - mountains of flooded cars, units, boxes and other stuff.
