Can anyone identify the weapon on the outboard pylon in these photos of a UAE Desert Falcon?

Looks like a derivative of the GBU-15/AGM-130 family, but I wasn't sure. I'm not certain from this angle, but one of the forward fins might have been removed.

Thanks!

Elbs figured it out. It's a derivative of MBDA's/Hikim PGM-2000

Tail numbers 3001,3002, & 3003 were all used for testing at the LM facility by the UAE.
