Germany has announced more problems for the Typhoon fleet. They have restricted them from flying with external fuel tanks after the right tank fell
off an aircraft while it was waiting to take off.
The aircraft involved in the incident has been grounded while an investigation occurs. It was preparing to launch on a patrol over the Baltic at the
time. The restriction means that aircraft flying patrols won't have the range or loiter time they had because they can only fly on internal fuel.
