And I am SO glad I did.  Essentially 19 and change for a gorgeous tier 7 with 4 20mm cannons.  Turns nice for such a large jet.  I am only a bit concerned about how quickly the guns overheat, but other than that...  Thank you Wargaming for the out-of-the-blue 40%-off coupon!

I am a newb scrub who started after 2.0.  I know...  I am truly sorry.  But this is looking fun!

Not like he could have traveled back in time to get it though.

 

Anyway, gratz on the Meteor - I've only flown mine once or twice so far and I find it a decent plane but not a really interesting or memorable one apart from the history. Maybe you could write a review about it in Quesnel's Community Contributed Guide to Premium Aircraft

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Oh man I remember that... grinding out for the first tier 7 jet in the game, good times, good times...

 

Though the Meteor going on the prem shop was one of the reasons I left the game after 1.5... oh well, I missed a lot but at least I got the Meteor when it first came out!

 

Still though the Meteor Mk.I is a pretty strong tier 7 fighter, you pretty much have the firepower of a Hornet on a quick fighter though it's not the best at dogfighting it feels pretty good to use, and the beta camo (if you have it) looks really nifty to boot. Good tier 7 prem.

 


I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

Wouldn't the Kostikov 302 been a better deal than the Meteor?

They are both great planes.  Meteor was definitely my favorite tier 7 fighter.  But I picket up the 302 on sale and it is right up there.  The 302 is great for getting out of sticky situations with an amazing boost.  I find that the 302 takes longer to destroy planes though.  Both are great and require 2 different play styles.
