If this really is the Meteor missile, is that any indication that we could be getting a relatively advance model/tranche of the Eurofighter?

1st image is definitely a meteor alright, there was another photo of it, looks like 3D art is still very much WIP

Oh goody another uber missile in the game. MP players will certainly rejoice <sarcasm>.

And I'm a bit surprised that good documentation for this is out in the open. Especially the 3rd party datalink stuff.

Nothing is out in the open about the Meteor missile. It's barely getting into service. EuroGmbh probably told True Grit to create a missile with the usual wikipedia info like burn time, range and speed; then add a seeker that's close to the in-game aim-120 with a few tweaked value and boom, you got a Meteor with a nice skin.

MBDA afaik is not part of Eurofighter GmbH, meaning that the latter has nothing to do with the Meteor and are likely the wrong people to ask whether it can be included in the game or not.

Looking promising! If you guys manage to get enough proper info for a proper Meteor, it'd be an interesting addition to the sim. But Meteor or not, I'll likely be flying this aircraft from day 1.

Likewise here.
I can clearly see all other modules in my hangar taking the back seats upon release of the tiffy.
My combat flight sim days started with this aircraft (famous DID Typhoon).

According to this post, ED will be making that call as weapons will henceforth only be developed in house. Guess we've got too many issues with third parties making guesses about missile Kinematics. lol

Honestly kinematics is probably the one thing that can be modeled vaguely accurately. Its more things like guidance laws, ECCM effectivness, seeker performance that are the more important things when it comes to missiles and overall those aren't modeled well for most missiles in DCS at this point IMO.
