 LGM-25C/SM-68C Titan II Missile Details
 


Aircraft/Missile Information
The Titan II was an Intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and space launcher developed by the Glenn L. Martin Company from the earlier Titan I missile. The Martin company received a contract for the new missile, designated SM-68B Titan II, in June 1960. The Titan II used storable propellants, Aerozine 50 and dinitrogen tetroxide. Use of storable propellants enabled the Titan II to be launched within 60 seconds directly from within its silo. The first flight of the Titan II was in December 1961 and the missile, now designated LGM-25C, reached initial operating capability in October 1963.

The Titan II was in service from 1963. After two accidents, deactivation of the Titan II ICBM system finally began in July 1982. The last operational Titan II missile was deactivated on May 5, 1987.
