On the 4th December 2012 the first launch of a MBDA Meteor missile from a Eurofighter Typhoon took place. This followed successful launches from Saab Gripen, Panavia Tornado F.Mk 3 (now retired) and Dassault Rafale. The weapon was launched from a rear fuselage missile station.

The flight trials were conducted with support from QinetiQ and MBDA at a firing range in Aberporth, Wales.
