The United States will on Thursday send six additional F-15 fighter jets to step up NATO's air patrols over the Baltic states, mission host Lithuania said as West-Russia tensions simmered over Ukraine.Since January, four US F-15 fighter jets have been assigned for air patrols over Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania -- three ex-Soviet Baltic states which are members of NATO and but which lack sufficient aircraft to patrol their skies.NATO also sent more fighters to identify Russian aircraft in January and February than in 2012, Viktorija Cieminyte told AFP, declining to provide specific numbers.
