NATO Aircraft

Over the last few months I've seen a couple of NATO C17's flying around, which I'd no idea were in existence. I've seen the LX-N registered E-3 AWACS planes many times over the years, but not knowingly any other types ? What else have I missed ? :-)

All now scrapped/PWFU, hence the use of the past tense.
