This is what happens when you buy aircraft based on politics instead of mission requirements.


This is what happens when some crook general makes a side deal instead of selling the aircraft outright to another country that isn't living a 24/7 sand storm. The Avionics in one of those aircraft are worth 10 times more than they got for scrap. the engine twice that so someone is black marketing millions. They scrapped them to hide the trail of parts they sold.

Proper care and preventative maintenance are pretty foreign concepts in this part of the world. I can't envision the Afghan military having the organization, skills, or concern to do what needed to be done to keep these planes flying. 


I'm sure they only scrapped the airframes. DLA know what they're doing. The effort and expense required to make the salvaged components ready for sale would probably make selling everything a little more than a break even proposition. Since they still have 4 aircraft in service some usable components would be placed in the supply system although I have no doubt that anything that could be sold has been sold.
