Would like to add that a majority of the larger equipment left with the ANA was beat up and nearing the end of useful service. A possible exception were the A-29s but even they won't last without maintenance.
The same is true for most of the contractor equipment, a lot of it was hand-me-downs. The Embassy had the least worn kit but not much of it.

Planes are most certainly deadlined soon; but a lot of the smaller stuff (and ground stuff) can be redneck engineered; and this version of the taliban has set up their own Special Forces units:

A.) Badr 313 --- named after the battle of Badr, where Mohammed had 313 men.

B.) Red Unit (Sara Kheta) -- per Wiki:

The Red Unit, which numbered approximately 300 by 2016, reportedly employs commando tactics and is equipped with "advanced weaponry", including night vision equipment, heavy machine guns and M4 carbines.[10][11] Members have been seen during photo ops to be carrying Icom IC-V8 VHF radios.[12] They are known to be especially proficient in night combat, and considered to be better trained and equipped than most Afghan National Army soldiers.[7]

Though generally called the Taliban's special forces[1] or commandos,[3] analysts have argued that the Red Unit was probably not performing traditional special operations missions, but were, instead, being used as shock troops or a rapid deployment force.[2][8][13] Moving on motorcycles, the unit often raids isolated outposts, destroying the local defences, and then retreating before other forces can respond.[7] The Red Unit often spearheads Taliban offensives,[14] as it has proven to be very effective in combat. Nevertheless, its equipment and training are inferior to those of Western special forces


So expect those:

162,000~ pieces of communications equipment
16,000~ pieces of Night Vision Equipment

to be used in expanding Badr 313/Red Unit to larger formation sizes in the short term; and in the long term, being cannibalized for spares -- and they have enough to keep it going for a while.

Having worked with the Afghani Army I doubt very much if they will still have much of anything left up and running in a month to six months. They could not or would not understand that engines need maintenance.

All the small arms are going to do is allow them to arm more men, but the ammo is not compatible with the majority of what they have. Going to be interesting to see what they cobble together in their village forges to keep the M16s etc...supplied with ammo.

5.56 ammo will not be hard to acquire methinks. It's used worldwide. Keeping the engines maintained is another issue

Update on situation inside Afganistan

Taliban claim final conquer of Panshir Valley. And that is probably true they enter inside valley and fights if still are ongoing probably are on final bastions of resistance in mountains.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-m9X1vsWKso

Resistance is still fighting but now lost last province
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o21nUTm6ZiA

But what is interesting Taliban to have this swift victory use external resources available.
According to this video from Pakistan
  • their Cobra Attack helicopters
  • Their aircraft JF-17 Thunder
  • And Pakistani Commandos forces which were inserted by helicopters inside valley

Resistance show one photo of shot down Pakistani fighter
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcBkA68s2YM

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcBkA68s2YM

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPGYJ6jwvfg

So such relay on external power openly without hiding it made outrage inside country and internal protest with simple phrase "Pakistani go home" so looks that was a danger move from Taliban side probably they don't care and thinking that such open show who is their ally doesn't meter now when war is nearly over.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1i69iD9ZQs
looks that ordinary peoples does care and probably negotiation was better option because the may have now many ordinary people against their new government. For me looks like military victory for price of internal political disaster. If that will go this way no more "inclusive" government because people saw that they are only emanation of next external invader.

Brave women's made protest even earlier in 4th of September
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4NrNn8Zk8c

And now they join together with angry men because Pakistani involvement

Here from London and then from Herat people shout "Death to Pakistan"

The October issue of AirForces magazine has an article on the Afghan Air Force just before and during the collapse. I don't know how useful this information will be but I thought I would post it.

Quoting from a June 30th report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction the operational strength of the Afghan A.F., excluding aircraft not in country was:

23 A-29B Super Tucano
10 AC-208B Eliminators
23 Cessna 208B Grand Caravans
3 C-130H Hercules
33 Mi-8/17 Hips
43 MD530F Cayuse Warriors
33 UH-60A+ Black Hawks

22 fixed wing aircraft and 24 helicopters, types not specified, were reportedly flown to Uzbekistan. 1 UH-60A+ is reported to have crashed in Uzbekistan when it ran out of fuel and 1 A-29B was destroyed when it collided with an Uzbek A.F. Mig-29.
About 40 operational fixed wing and helicopters are believed to have been captured by the Taliban, including 2 Mi-8/17s, 5 to 7 MD530Fs, at least 1 A-29B and an unknown number of AC-208Bs.
