During the Belkan War, this aircraft was used by both Belka and the Allied Forces. Several being used to transport allied ground troops were shot down by Excalibur as the war entered Belkan lands.[1] During Operation Stone Age, a Belkan remnant forces' C-17 seen attempting to leave Mount Schirm carrying information of the XB-0 Hresvelgr. [2]

During the Continental War, this aircraft was used by both the ISAF Air Force and Federal Erusea Air Force. Federal Erusea Air Force utilised Globemasters to transport fuels and troops to Comberth Harbor, but all of them were shot down northeast of Comberth Harbor by ISAF fighters.[3] During Operation Sandstorm Globemasters were used by the ISAF to transport their ground troops to Whiskey Corridor region.[4]

During Emmeria-Estovakia War, the Estovakian Air Force used these planes to drop airborne forces during the Invasion of Gracemeria, although most were shot down by the Emmerian Air Force.[5] Later C-17s were used by the Estovakian Air Force during operations in Kijera Oil Fields[6] and Moloch Desert.[7]

At the time of the Lighthouse War, during Operation Full House, one Osean Globemaster, callsign "Roper 1", was utilized to ferry Colonel D. McKinsey of the 444th Air Base to a regular base. Despite taking fire from Erusean combatants around Bulgurdarest's borders, he was able to land safely.[8] C-17As were also deployed by the Erusean Air Force as heavy cargo aircraft; three were destroyed by Mage Squadron during Operation Eastern Wind.[9] One of the three C-17As was carrying explosive cargo which detonated when the plane was destroyed during the battle; this was later determined to be a missile codenamed Helios that was to be used by one of the Arsenal Birds during Operation Flush.[10]

Leasath Air Force operated a lone C-17A during the Aurelian War.[11]
