The Gloster Meteor F.4 LW is a jet fighter, currently sitting at Tier 18 in the British line. The upfront cost of is 1,770,000 Lion.


An updated version of the Gloster Meteor F.3, the F.4 featured the Derwent 5 engines, a stronger airframe, a fully pressurized cockpit, lighter ailerons to improve maneuverability, and rudder trim adjustments to reduce snaking. The F.4 could also be fitted with a drop tank under each wing, and experiments were performed with carriage of underwing stores. 

A total of 535 Meteor F.4s was built for the RAF, with 48 of that number second-sourced by Armstrong-Whitworth. The F.4 was also exported in large numbers. Gloster took an F.4 on a sales tour in 1947, painted red with white detailing. Although this aircraft was damaged beyond repair by a Belgian pilot early in the tour due to a landing gear malfunction, international sales were brisk.
