Without scheduled maintenance a helo won't stay in the air very long. Trust me. Go buy yourself a .gov surplus Humvee and then tell us how well it runs. Military equipment no matter if it is aircraft, tracked, or wheeled vehicle was never meant to last a lifetime.
Old news. We drone striked lots of that stuff by nowHuey » 14 Sep 2021, 1:29 pm » wrote: ↑
And lets not forget about the new equipment we gave to the Afghan Army:
WASHINGTON, Aug 19 (Reuters) - About a month ago, Afghanistan's ministry of defense posted on social media photographs of seven brand new helicopters arriving in Kabul delivered by the United States.
Video showed the advancing insurgents inspecting long lines of vehicles and opening crates of new firearms, communications gear and even military drones.
Another official said that while there are no definitive numbers yet, the current intelligence assessment was that the Taliban are believed to control more than 2,000 armored vehicles, including U.S. Humvees, and up to 40 aircraft potentially including UH-60 Black Hawks, scout attack helicopters, and ScanEagle military drones.
"We have already seen Taliban fighters armed with U.S.-made weapons they seized from the Afghan forces. This poses a significant threat to the United States and our allies," Representative Michael McCaul, the top Republican on the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, told Reuters in an email.

Absolutely. In 6 months, or less, all that equipment will be junk. Maybe Huey would like to go for a short ride, and I do mean short, in one of those Blackhawks. I would prefer not to. They may kill more taliban. " Abdul, by the beard of the prophet, you must get this devil machine started again, we are losing altitude. Oh ****!!"
That stuff is an Afghan problem now. I dont care what they do with itJeanMoulin » 14 Sep 2021, 1:38 pm » wrote: ↑

That would have made Biden's **** up a bit better so it would have been trumpeted by the media. Since there were no stories about US equipment being explosively disabled but there have been Taliban parades with them driving our ****, going to have to deduce that never happened.
