The Indian Army uses animals extensively in Kashmir. They are extremely useful, because quite often, the terrain is too bad for terrestrial vehicles.
High altitudes and deep, rough landscapes in Kashmir allow the use of only high altitude endurance helicopters for the heavy guns and donkey trains for the supplies.
Afghanistan being in the same Himalayan neighbourhood, I suppose they've found them useful there too.

I suppose the terrain is ok for extra-terrestial vehicles ?
