Dragon DRW56395 NASA Titan III Rockets with Launch Pads Set [3-Pack] (1:400 Scale) "We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."
- President John F. Kennedy, speaking at Rice University, Houston, Texas, September 12th, 1962

The USAs 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 IIIs strengths was its flexibility, which allowed it to carry a variety of payloads depending on the mission required of it. Dragons 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. Now in stock!
