I don't know...it looks pretty weird when you zoom in on it. But I'm not an aircraft guy so I'll take your word for it.

Is the first pic new?
yes, from the International Fighter Conference 2018, that caption clearly says
there were only murky shots from the screen before

The airliner to the left of the Typhoon appears to be an Airbus MRTT; I think the horizontal white line just above the fuselage is a refueling hose coming from the drogue pod on the right wing.
exactly so

PARIS --- France and Germany on Jan. 31 awarded a two-year, 65-million euro contract to Airbus Defence and Space and Dassault Aviation to define the general architecture, and the industrial organization, of their next-generation combat aircraft, according to senior French officials.

The contract kicks off work on the new combat system, known in France as the Système de Combat Aérien Futur (SCAF) and in English as the Future Combat Air System (FCAS), and was awarded by France’s defense procurement agency, DGA, acting on behalf of both governments, to Airbus and Dassault as co-contractors. Its 65-million euro cost is split between both countries on a 50-50 basis.

The award will be officially announced on Wednesday Feb. 6 in Gennevilliers, near Paris, when French Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly and her German counterpart, Ursula von der Leyen, will together visit a Safran plant and witness the signing of a Letter of Intent between Safran and MTU Aero Engines on the SCAF program. The ministers will also visit the PFX research center where Safran is developing high-technology blades for advanced turbines.

In fact, their co-contractor status is limited to the architecture study, and does not modify the leadership roles: France will lead the New-Generation Fighter project as well as the Next-Generation Weapon System of which it is a component, with Dassault as industrial leader, and Airbus as junior partner.
65M$ Tells you that very nothing was done. And now that any trace of competition is off the board and irrational allotment of project shares dominates, it would be crazy for any outside investor... to invest a dime.
This has all the signs to point toward a very costly story.

Spending 60m EUR over two years hardly a sign of great commitment. It won't even buy much paper.
