We study, within the Monte-Carlo Glauber model, centrality dependence of the midrapidity charged multiplicity density and of the anisotropy coefficients in Pb + Pb collisions at TeV and in Xe + Xe collisions at TeV. Calculations are performed for versions with and without nucleon meson cloud. The fraction of the binary collisions, , has been fitted to the data on in Pb + Pb collisions. We obtain with (without) meson cloud. The effect of meson cloud on the is relatively small. For Xe + Xe collisions for 0–5% centrality bin we obtain and 1134 with and without meson cloud, respectively. We obtain for most central collisions, and close to unity at [see pdf] . We find a noticeable increase of the eccentricity in Xe + Xe collisions at small centralities due to the prolate shape of the Xe nucleus. The triangularity in Xe + Xe collisions is bigger than in Pb + Pb collisions at [see pdf] . We obtain at [see pdf] .
