Experts note that due to the radical change in the situation in Afghanistan, there is a serious threat to Russia, although at the moment there have been no attempts to break through the border with Tajikistan behind the Taliban.

There is no threat for Russia .. On the contrary, Russia can use this situation to strengthen its position in the region

Quote "... 715 American armored SUVs were captured ... 2 Afghan Army tanks ..."
But there are only two roads in Afghanistan:
1) Highway connecting Herat, Kandahar, Ghazni and Kabul (Among the rocks and serpentine)
2) Delaram Highway - Zaranj
That armored vehicles are very "useful" there ....))
One thing is certain that the government Army will not be able to resist - for the locals it is just a job where they were paid regularly. It is worth remembering the Afghan "greens" (government army of the DRA)

These are not Japanese pickups from the 70s - 80s of the last millennium, the equipment is complex and not unified by zip with civilian products, will be turned into real estate in six months or a year
