Dornier worked on this advanced AAM in 1977-1980. It featured body lift and in one form motor TVC steering. Both IR and miniature radar guidance were investigated.

Interesting nozzle design there. One comparatively small nozzle aimed directly aft and four canted nozzles that balance through the missile centerline. I can understand the multiple nozzles as opposed to one large nozzle, it makes for better expansion ratios and better performance.
