Eurofighter Complete 1st Phase of Meteor Missiles Tests

Eurofighter have completed a range of air-carriage trials for the MBDA Meteor Beyond Visual Range Air-to-Air Missile (BVRAAM), which forms part of the process of integrating the missile onto the Typhoon swing-role combat aircraft.

The first of a series of trials to ensure the safe separation of the missile across the flight envelope were carried out by Eurofighter Partner Company BAE Systems with Instrumented Production Aircraft IPA 1 on the Aberporth range, UK.


The introduction of the Meteor missile will ensure that the Typhoon continues as the world's most advanced swing-role combat aircraft well into the future, keeping ahead of developing air-to-air threats.

Meteor is a ramjet powered next generation Beyond Visual Range Air-to-Air Missile system (BVRAAM), with the largest No Escape Zone of any air-to-air weapon resulting in a long stand-off range and high kill probability to ensure air superiority and pilot survivability. This is being developed on behalf of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the UK by MBDA.
