Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker (or Boeing Model 717)
135T means : new motorisation (turboreactors) of the KC-135Q.
It is one of the 56 KC-135A that became KC-135Q, specially equipped to refuel the SR-71. (according to Wikipedia...)

It is on the Boeing 707 Frame

Per Joe Baugher's website:
Air Force Serial Number 60-0346 (MSN 18121) was delivered as a KC-135A-BN. It was converted to KC-135Q and later to KC-135T. Active as such in September 2017 with 171st Air Refuelling Squadron Michigan Air National Guard.

Jeffrey Brooks: The Boeing Models 707 and 717 (aka C-135) are different airframes. They look similar but are not the same thing.

the Boeing 717 is NOT a KC 135
KC 135 IS built on the frame of a 707
We have a slew of KC 135's here in Pgh as part of the 171st Air Refueling wing or the PA Air Guard

the 717 was Originally marketed by McDonnell Douglas as a MD 95--- a derivative of the DC-9--
from the company website.
