Army Chief of Staff said that though the Taliban has been equipped with advanced weapons, but the Afghan security forces will be equipped with more fighter bombers and transport aircrafts in the coming year.
“Yes, the enemey equipped with the advanced weapons, but we also have modern arms. We will also equip the local forces with the developed arms and weapons,” said Qadam Shah Shahin, army chief of staff.
What makes the current battle difficult is the lack of air forces, because the ground forces lack fighter bombers in the battlefields.
“We will have more fighter aircrafts of Supertocano, MD 35 and transport aircrafts this year and the US Black Hok aircrafts will be include to security ranks in the year 2018,” Shahim added.
Afghan political experts are said to believe that Taliban’s modern weapons and advanced military equipment leaves negative impact on the moral of Afghan Security Forces.
They believe that the war of attrition in Afghanistan and demoralization of the Afghan military and security forces are the main causes for the fall of some parts of the country to the hands of the Taliban.
