Sohail Anjum Qureshi was sentenced to four and a half years after admitting three terror charges.
In his flat, police discovered pictures of al-Qaeda-trained Qureshi posing with automatic weapons.
Police believe that, in 2006, Qureshi, who is originally from Pakistan, embarked on a plan to commit acts of terrorism - possibly against coalition forces in Afghanistan.
Qureshi admitted in court his intention to commit or assist another to commit an act of terrorism overseas.
In the weeks before his intended departure to Pakistan, he gathered the necessary material, finances and information for his mission - including these steel batons.
Police believe Qureshi purchased night-vision goggles as part of his plan to carry out terror attacks.
These two back-packs were recovered from luggage that Qureshi intended to take with him to Pakistan.
