or

Meteor F.3 and F.4

 

Currently the F.3 and F.4 Meteors are missing the payload of 2x 1000lb bombs and at least 8x rockets, currently they have no payload.

While the payload tended not to be mounted, the Meteors were more than capable of mounting these bombs.

But both reference Gunston, Bill - The Encyclodepia of the Worlds Combat aircraft, 1976,

 

It's even mentioned on the Gaijin War Thunder wiki.

 

Here you can see at the bottom an Gloster Meteor F.4 E.E.519 with a pair of 1000lb bombs.

Meteor F.8

 

Currently in game the Meteor F.8 has access to 2x 1000lb bombs, 8x 60lb rockets or 8x 127mm rockets. However the F.8 Meteor had access to the "Reaper" Modification allowing the F.8 to carry 16-24x 60lb rockets. They F.8 Meteor could also carry 4x 1000lb bombs or it could carry 2x 1000lb bombs under the fuselage and 8x HVAR Rockets under the wings.
