looking at the airframe & wings I can see thsi aircarft as basis for AWACS, Tanker and EW variants. Stretched it could even look like an airliner .. however 4 engines are expensive for an airliner this size. Cross section looks like that of the P3.
A solution must be find to replace the hundreds of Orions flying around the world. Some are getting very old..
