The EK-17U is a heavy tanker employed by the Universal Peace Enforcement Organization.
Looking at its design and size, the EK-17U is probably derived from C-17B Globemaster IV. Its ability to lift heavy weight shows that this plane is considerably suitable for carrying the tons of jet fuel used for air-refueling. It is exclusively used by Universal Peace Enforcement Organization (UPEO) tanker units.
If the designation is anything to go by, this aircraft may also have some electronic warfare capability but if this is the case it will most likely be a secondary role and possibly only to provide cover for refueling aircraft.
