The Titan IIIC was an expendable launch system used by the United States Air Force from 1965 until 1982. It was the first Titan booster to feature large solid rocket motors which have fewer parts than liquid-propellant rockets and are of simpler construction. They are also safer, more reliable and more powerful. The first Titan IIIC flew in June 1965, the most powerful launcher used by the Air Force at the time.
