Over 1,530 unusable military vehicles repaired: MoD

KABUL: A total of 1,535 various military vehicles which had been destroyed and left unusable have been repaired by the engineering team of the Joint Military Training Command of the Ministry of National Defense, a statement from the ministry said the other day. The repaired military vehicles included 1,250 Ranger-type trucks, 60 Humvees,42 coastertype vans, 13 Forklifts, 22 trailer trucks, 17 Fords, 5 excavators and 10 bulldozers, said the statement. Up to 590 of the repaired vehicles belonged to the previous government and due to lack of required parts, they remained unusable and after the provision of the required parts by the engineering teams of the Islamic Emirate, their repairing process was com- pleted, the statement further said. Meanwhile, dozens of destroyed and unusable weapons and military vehicles have been repaired by the technical team of the 209th Al-Fath Corps of the Ministry of National Defense, the statement added. The repaired weapons and military vehicles included 6 strike tanks, 18 ranger-type trucks, 36 Humvees, 7 internationals, 3 forklifts, 3 cranes and 11 four-wheel motorcycles. Earlier, more than 63 helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft that were rendered unusable by technical issues had also been repaired by the engineering teams of the ministry. Efforts are underway to repair all destroyed and unusable military vehicles countrywide, and the ministry’s engineering and technical teams have so far repaired hundreds of vehicles that had been destroyed in the past. This comes after the U.S. Defense Ministry, in one of its reports, earlier said that military equipment costing 7 billion U.S. dollars provided for the former Afghan government security and defense forces, is now taken by the Islamic Emirate forces. The report also said that 40,000 of 96,000 military vehicles including 12,000 armored Humvees which have been handed over to the ex-Afghan government security forces have also been taken and are now being used by the Islamic Emirate forces.
