How did DARPA's Black Hawk fly without a pilot?

Three people were killed after a Black Hawk chopper crashed during a Taliban training exercise in Kabul, according to the group’s defense ministry on Saturday.

All of the aircraft’s instruments and equipment were damaged and rendered inoperable when the US withdrew from Afghanistan. Given that they were left in Afghanistan, these represent the largest technological asset that any nation possesses. The mess of leaving the pricey aircraft over the Taliban was caused by the turmoil of the populace’s instability and the safe deployments of the military from Afghanistan.

After taking over the nation a little over a year ago, the Taliban grabbed control of some American-made aeroplanes.

It is yet unknown how many are active. While departing, U.S. forces purposefully destroyed certain military equipment, and Afghan forces dispatched some helicopters to countries in central Asia.
