The USAís family of Titan expendable rockets was extremely successful, with a total of 368 rockets launched between 1959 and 2005. One of the rockets from this family was the Titan III, which was a modified Titan II with optional solid rocket boosters. It was used primarily for US Air Force (USAF) missions to launch heavy satellites (e.g. for reconnaissance, defense communications) into orbit. The Titan IIIA was a prototype and it was soon followed by the IIIB. The Titan IIIC, and its derivative IIID, was indispensable in launching large payloads into space, serving as the largest unmanned space booster until the Titan IV entered service in 1988. A 13.1-tonne payload could be sent into a low-earth orbit, or 3 tonnes could be sent into a geosynchronous transfer orbit. The Titan IIIE, meanwhile, featured a high-specific-impulse Centaur upper stage that was used to launch scientific spacecraft to distant destinations such as Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Mars.

One of the Titan IIIís strengths was its flexibility, which allowed it to carry a variety of payloads depending on the mission required of it. Dragonís scale model of the Titan III comes with three rockets on three respective launch pads, thus creating instant and dramatic dioramas. This generous selection of different types of Titan IIIs also makes the set extremely good value for collectors.

Martin Titan III 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.
