    Germany said on Wednesday it hoped to resolve the restricted supply of certain components for its fleet of 129 Eurofighter jets in coming weeks, and the issue should not derail its plans to resume air policing in the Baltic region from September.

The component issue, first reported by Spiegel Online on Tuesday, centres on a so-called "grease nipple" that is part of the system that cools the wingtip pods that house elements of the self-protection system, which was designed by BAE Systems.
