Taliban unveils special forces: High tech equipment, armour vest, night vision

After taking over the capital of Afghanistan, the Taliban has now unveiled their special force which is well equipped with modern gears.

The unit is reportedly named after the Battle of Badr that is written about in the Qur’an, in which the Prophet Mohammed successfully defeated an enemy force with just 313 men some 1,400 years ago.

In videos and images released by the group, the Badri 313 soldiers are seen with military helmets and sunglasses instead of the usual tuban, bullet proof vests over camouflage jackets and trousers instead of the typical robes, and armed with tactical rifle.

When the Taliban first released images of the Badri 313, experts believed that they were sending a signal that showed they were no longer a rag-tag group of farmers, but now had modern military capabilities.
