THE DAY AFTER: U.S. FORCES LEFT RADAR SYSTEMS, HUNDREDS OF VEHICLES AT AFGHANISTAN’S BAGRAM AIR BASE (PHOTOS)

U.S. forces have left behind radar and navigation systems as well as hundreds of vehicles at Afghanistan’s Bagram Air Base.

After operating it for nearly 20 years, U.S. forces completed their withdrawal from the air base, which is located in the eastern province of Parwan, and handed it over to Afghan government forces on July 2.

On July 3, the Afghan Civil Aviation Authority revealed that the U.S. military left behind a Radar and a Very-Small-Aperture Terminal (VSAT) systems at the air base. The systems, which were deactivated by U.S. troops before withdrawal, were successfully reactivated by Afghan engineers.

According to the TOLO News, the U.S. military also left behind more than 700 vehicles of several types at the air base. Photos showing some of the vehicles were shared by the channel.

Before withdrawing, U.S. troops destroyed and scrapped hundreds of pieces of equipment and vehicles at the air base. Local merchants who purchased the material told the TOLO News that the scrap worth millions of dollars was left.

Bagram Air Base was the U.S. largest military installation in Afghanistan. Some 10,000 U.S. troops served at the air base over the last two decades.
