The Titan family of expendable rockets was extremely successful, with a total of 368 launches between 1959 and 2005. One of the rockets from this family was the Titan IIIC, a space booster used for U.S. Air Force missions. Built by Martin Marietta it first flew on June 18, 1965, and its final flight in March 1982. The Titan IIIC used a Titan III core with two large solid fuel boosters to increase its launch thrust, and hence the maximum payload capability.
The Titan III C 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-ton payload could be sent into low-earth orbit or 3 tons into a geosynchronous transfer orbit. One of the Titan IIIC strengths was its flexibility. It could carry a variety of payloads depending on the mission.
