US sends planes to Afghanistan (US Sends B-52 Bombers to Afghanistan) – symbolic picture
US Sends B-52 Bombers to Taliban: After the withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan, the Taliban’s occupation is increasing rapidly, which America has made full preparations to stop. US President Joe Biden has ordered the sending of B-52 bombers and Specter gunships to Afghanistan to bomb Taliban terrorists (Taliban US Air Force). The Cold War-era B-52 bomber first flew in the 1950s but is still used due to its 70,000 pound payload and range of over 8,000 miles.
On the other hand, talking about the S-130 Specter gunship, it has a 25 mm gun, 40 mm Bofors cannon and 105 mm M102 cannon, with the help of which, while in the air, the earth can be accurately targeted. As the US-led coalition leaves the war-torn country of Afghanistan, the Taliban is moving across the country, which Afghan security forces are struggling to deal with (AC-130 Bombers). Within 24 hours, the Taliban have captured two of the country’s provincial capitals.
Prisoners taken out of jail after occupying the area
The Taliban captured Zaranj, the capital of Nirmoz province, on Friday and the town of Shebergen in Jozjan on Saturday. It is seen in a video viral on social media that the Taliban took out prisoners from the prison there after taking control of Shebergan (Taliban Afghanistan Latest News). Something similar was also seen in Jojjaan in another video. The Taliban are present in Herat, Lashkar Gah and Kandahar. “Government forces and officials have retreated from the airport,” said Jozjan deputy governor Kader Malia.
Afghan army dependent on US planes
The Afghan Air Force relies on US-supplied aircraft and helicopters. US defense sources have told the Times that B-52 and S-130 aircraft are targeting terrorists around Kandahar, Herat and Lashkar Gah in Helmand province. The B-52s are being operated out of Qatar, while the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan is deployed in the Arabian Sea (Taliaban Control Areas in Afghanistan). This nuclear-powered warship has a fleet of F/A-18 Super Hornets. The Afghan Air Force is equipped with some turbo-prop light attack aircraft such as the A-29 Super Tucano. For this, only 30 pilots have been able to qualify since 2015.
