The Titan family of expendable rockets was extremely successful, with 368 launches between 1959 and 2005. The 48m-long Titan IIIE, sometimes referred to as the Titan III-Centaur, was used a total of seven times. The name Centaur stemmed from the fact that a Centaur-D upper stage was added to boost the system's performance. This three-stage rocket was instrumental in launching NASA's two Voyager probes to Jupiter and Saturn, as well as the two Viking missions. The latter put instrumented landers on the surface of Mars. The Titan IIIE was used from 1974-77, with all missions blasting off from Space Launch Complex 41 (SLC-41) at Cape Canaveral in Florida.

Now collectors and space enthusiasts can recreate the dramatic launch of a Titan IIIE with Dragon's newest 1/400 scale model. The new Dragon Space miniature shows an impressive Titan IIIE rocket positioned on its SLC-41 launch pad awaiting blastoff from Cape Canaveral. The pre-painted model is highly accurate and is fully detailed, including correct sequences of markings. It comes with its special high-specific-impulse Centaur upper stage, which gives it a very different appearance to the Titan IIIC released previously. The metallic color of this upper stage is authentically reproduced. The model also features two huge strap-on solid rocket boosters. For folk who wish to feel the power of a Titan rocket launch, this is a must-have item!

Martin Titan IIIE Rocket

The Titan rocket was a general purpose expendable launch vehicle that was first flown on February 6th, 1959. The Titan program was developed to provide a back-up launch system for the Atlas program as well as to develop a larger two-stage launch system. 368 Titan rockets were launched, including those used by NASA for project Gemini. The complete Titan family spanned, in increasing size and power, from the Titan I thru Titan IV.
