The incident forced the country's air force to stop all Eurofighters from flying unless their defective external fuel tanks were removed, according to Defense World.
That is a problem for Estonia because without the external fuel tank Eurofighters won't be able to fly over the Baltic Sea.
Germany, by the way, has cancelled a large-scale purchase program of Typhoons. The German Air Force currently has only 109, but according to local media only 42 were ready to fly last October due to the lack of spare parts. Nobody knows whether Eurofighters that Germany delivered to Estonia were among the 42 fighter jets that were ready to fly.
All the fuss about protecting the Baltic States from alleged Russian "aggression" is a well-played move by some NATO members. The United States, Britain and Germany all understand that there isn't a threat of any "invasion," and use the Baltic States as a site to send their old military equipment.
Moreover, both London and Paris understand that by providing "protection" they could then possibly send refugees to the Baltics. The locals of course will be against it, but no refugees would mean no protection.
And thus, NATO, similar to the external fuel tank of a Eurofighter, is a useless, redundant, obsolete and defective body of Western policies. Just like the fuel tank, NATO will one day fall apart and cause more harm than good, Sheinkman concluded.
