Titan I Missile Configuration

Additional information on the Titan I missile and its missile bases can be found at the Titan I Epitaph.

The Titan I evolved into the improved Titan II. Although the Titan I used conventional LOX/RP-1 propellants and the Titan II used the hypergolic Aerozine-50/nitrogen tetroxide combination, the two missiles still shared the same first and second stage engines. Also see my info pages on the Titan I First Stage Engines (LR-87) and the Titan I Second Stage Engine (LR-91).
