Taliban Helicopters

My guess is Taliban will either get them working, or just buy helicopters they can maintain. The ‘Big T’ Taliban are sophisticated, and rich, with plenty of contacts internationally. And we just gave them 20 years of fine training. They are fully enabled.

There was Taliban 1.0 after the civil war.

They grew in sophistication and by the time we invaded they were Taliban 2.0.

In 2021, they are like Taliban 10.0. The top folks are very smart, they have property all over, such as Dubai, and their children go to universities all over the world. These are not your granddad’s Taliban. (The grunt-Taliban have not changed much, but Top Tier are flying first class.)
