The Meteor Heavy Strike Fighter was billed as the standard that other heavy atmospheric fighters are judged by following the announcement of its release in 2665. Seeking to claim a slice of the same military niche of for-export conventional fighters as Andurien Aerotech's Angel and Imstar Aerospace's Defender, the Federated Suns-based Jalastar Aerospace of Panpour chose to focus almost entirely on planetary militias in the Terran Hegemony. Third-party sales during the Star League era and examples captured as the Hegemony was sliced up after the League's collapse made the Meteor the template for heavy strike fighters everywhere.
While more expensive than turbine-powered designs, the wealthy and technologically-advanced Terran Hegemony buyers welcomed Jalastar's choice of a GM 225 Atmo-Fusion Engine to power the Meteor, which gave the fighter both a respectable airspeed, heavy weapons load-out and two and half tons of armor. Three tons of fuel gave the design good endurance for its role. The Meteor's primary weapon is a single nose-mounted Mydron Model B Autocannon/10 supplied with two tons of ammo, providing sustained medium range firepower. Backing up this up are two wing-mounted Holly SRM-4 with two tons of ammo, ideal for ground attack. Often billed as a "bomber-fighter," the Meteor frequently flew into combat with its nine external hardpoints laden with enough ordnance to threaten even the toughest foes.

New Avalon looks like a 1950s musical.
