Titan III, Dyna-Soar (Titan III), The New York Times, Major Feature 1962
Feb 15, 2007 // // New York Times Major Features of Scarfo Art

Titan III - The first launch vehicle developed by the Air Force from the outset as a space booster. It will meet the requirements in the 5,000 to 25,000 pound payload range for low orbits. It will be capable of placing 10 tons in a 100 nautical mile orbit. The first announced payload for the Titan III will be the X-20. The core vehicle will consist of a strengthened two-stage Titan II storable propellant rocket 10 ft. in diameter, a new additional upper stage, a control module on top, and two five-segment solid propellant motors, each 10 ft. in diameter, strapped on the sides of the core.

The core vehicle (Titan II) will have a thrust of over 546,000 pounds, is approximately 10 ft. in diameter and 120 ft. long. The core vehicle plus the upper stage and strap-on solids will have a thrust of more than 2 ½ million pounds. The diameter of the Titan III at the base will be approximately 30 ft.

The complete booster plus Dyna-Soar will stand 151 ft. high.

The first stage – two solid propellant, five-segment rocket motors developing a thrust of over 1 million pounds each. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th stages are storable liquid propellants which are hypergolic; that is they burn on contact. The fuel is a blend of hydranine and unsymmetrical dimethye dydrazine. The oxidizer is nitrogen tetroxide.

2nd stage thrust – 430,000 pounds
3rd stage thrust – 100,000 pounds
4th stage thrust – 16,000 pounds”
