US 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, US 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 US military left behind a Radar and a VSAT [Very-Small-Aperture Terminal] systems at the air base. The systems, which were deactivated by US troops before withdrawal, were successfully reactivated by Afghan engineers.


According to the TOLO News, the US 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, US 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.


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