Lots of fun

Last Saturday night, after an afternoon of hard work on our project, I decided to give a try to the CVEL-Titans Orbiter's addon, which offers a very decent sample of the Titan rocket family. Since I have lately grow a certain attraction for the late Titan III and IV, it sounded like a good way of spending some well deserved relaxation time, sending Luna looking probe into LEO :-) There's something about Titan that is appealing, I'm not to sure if it is its modularity, or its cute looks (especially on the late variant of it), but it's a neat vehicle. Since it was used mainly for military payload (except for the Gemini program and some NASA probes), there isn't much available documentation on it. At least not as much as for the Saturn launch vehicle.

Anyhow, I found the following video on YouTube, which have some pretty neat sequences from various Titan launches:
