The Taliban has displayed suicide vests and bombs during a weapons parade, while bizarre footage showed its fighters doing combat displays as the group celebrates its conquest of Afghanistan.

The chilling weapon parade, broadcast on Afghanistan state television, saw devices including explosive suicide vests, IEDs and car bombs being pulled behind trucks. 

Meanwhile, an unusual video showed Taliban fighters performing martial arts and combat displays, which saw them smashing plates with their fists and doing choreographed Hollywood-style fight scenes.

Video footage of the weapons procession saw a group of fighters marching with the Islamic Emirate's flag, before various vehicles towing US-made weapons and bombs followed them.

In the disturbing clip, various types of bombs were paraded past onlookers on flatbeds behind cars and trucks, with labels clarifying what each weapon was.

A flatbed displaying suicide vests and car bombs was driven past as a voiceover described the barrel bomb as the 'military industry of the Mujahideen', which is used to 'destroy the ordinary and armoured vehicles of the enemy'.

The 40-minute procession appeared to have taken place in front of Taliban leaders, who sat watching from a makeshift stand opposite the weapons display.

It is understood that the footage, which is believed to have been a 'celebration' of the Taliban's military, was filmed in Kandahar.

It comes as the Taliban released a bizarre propaganda video that saw jihadi fighters practicing various martial arts moves and combat displays.

In the footage, the fighters were seen smashing through boards with flying kicks, destroying pottery with flying punches and staging intense karate fight scenes.

The fighters were clad in black balaclavas and camouflage gear in the unusual compilation of martial arts stunts.

In one trick, a jihadi appeared to 'break the neck' of another fighter during a choreographed movie-esque fight, while another militant was seen running across the backs of his fellow fighters.

Gun-wielding fighters were also shown practicing firing their weapons at targets in the staged video, which was shared by Taliban bosses on social media.

The weapons parade came after it was revealed the US left up to 48 aircrafts in the hands of the terror group, although it was not known how many were operable.

But the Taliban had 'expected the Americans to leave helicopters like this in one piece for their use', according to an Al Jazeera reporter who toured the airport after the withdrawal.

She said: 'When I said to them, "why do you think that the Americans would have left everything operational for you?" They said because we believe it is a national asset and we are the government now and this could have come to great use for us.'

She added: 'They are disappointed, they are angry, they feel betrayed because all of this equipment is broken beyond repair.'

Along with the aircraft, the US left up to 200 civilians, 70 Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles and 27 Humvees in Afghanistan. 

The Afghan Air Force was operating 167 aircraft, including 108 helicopters and 59 planes, according to an official US government inspection on June 30. 

Before Kabul fell, Uzbekistan confirmed that 46 Afghan aircraft, including 24 helicopters, had arrived in the country in order to prevent them from falling into the hands of the Taliban. 

The commander of the US evacuation mission, Gen. Frank McKenzie, said American troops disabled 73 aircraft before finally leaving the country on Monday night. 

Propellers and guns were removed from planes and helicopters, while other aircraft lay with their fuselages directly on the tarmac, having had their wheels stripped away rendering them inoperable.

That left as many as 48 aircraft seized by the Taliban, although it is unclear what the breakdown is in terms of planes and helicopters, or what condition these aircraft might be in. 

Many were built in the 1980s and will need constant servicing and parts to make sure they are airworthy, let alone capable of combat.
