- "The Titan is a four-engine turboprop military transport plane, capable of using unprepared runways for takeoffs and landings, making it perfect for a busy city center. A freeway, a football field, a schoolyard... the choice is yours."
- ―ElitasTravel.com description.
The Titan is a cargo aircraft with four propellers, entirely based on the Lockheed C-130 "Hercules", most likely the most recent C-130H variant. Along with the Cargo Plane, it is one of the aircraft used by the military and Merryweather Security to transport materials. The vehicle always appear in a desert camo livery.
It features a rear cargo bay, however it is not possible to open it since a recent patch. It can seat 10 persons, being the second vehicle with the highest capacity of the game, behind the Miljet which can seat 16 persons.
The Titan has a slow speed and will drop at a rather fast rate if the engines are slower than max whilst airborne, however it is a very stable aircraft and is very easy to pilot. It has a short takeoff distance for its size and capacity; it also handles well when landing on makeshift runways such as deserts, fields and even some wide bridges.
- GTA V
- Fort Zancudo: Parked in the runway area. A four-star wanted level will be obtained after entering the base attracting Rhinos and P-996 Lazers, making the task of obtaining it highly dangerous.
- GTA Online
- Spawns at the Los Santos International Airport and Sandy Shores Airfield after Rank 32.
- Can be bought for $2,000,000 from Elitas Travel.
- In Franklin's hangar in Los Santos Airport.
- A unique Titan can be seen on an advertisement for Warstock Cache & Carry with an olive drab paint, light blue bottom and white vertical stabilizer. It cannot be found in-game, as it always spawns in desert camouflage.
- The Titan has two different registration numbers on its tail: TN-100 and AN-973.
- The existence of the Titan was first teased in a previous Rockstar production, Max Payne 3, in which a photograph of the aircraft appears in the multiplayer map Tiete River Docks, along with images of the Shamal, Luxor and the beta P-996 Lazer. The Titan pictured has the same current desert camo pattern but is grey, possibly a beta color.
- The cargo door was possible to open until Rockstar released a patch, removing that ability.
- After a recent update, Titans can now be stored in Franklin's and Michael's hangar.
- Titans are figures in Greek mythology, while its real life counterpart, the Hercules C-130, has the name of a Greek god with the same name.
- Once there are two passengers in the Titan's cockpit, a third passenger will not do the animation to enter the plane. They will instead teleport into the Titan's cargo bay.
- When leaving Fort Zancudo with the Titan you will have to go through a long process of reversing and turn 90 degrees onto the runway, and then taking off. Also, because of the four-star wanted level, approximately a dozen military soldiers and several Rhino tanks will be shooting at you non-stop during the lengthly process, which makes it nearly impossible to obtain without getting it destroyed, or being defeated by the army.
- The easiest way to obtain one in single player, is stealing it in Fort Zancudo during the mission Target Practice.
- Titan may be a reference to TITAN, a real world military contractor that competes with Blackwater (now known as Academi), the real world equivalent to Merryweather. Ironically, the Titan is part of the Merryweather's vehicle fleet.
- Whilst getting into a Titan pressing Y/Triangle while going up the stairs, the player can sometimes glitch inside or under the Titan, get into the cargo bay and even evade the Military.
- The Titan is the most expensive vehicle on GTA Online, however, purchasing the Titan is not really necessary, as it spawns at a hangar in Los Santos International Airport and it is not needed for any mission.
- Clipping the left wing on the Titan on certain structures will cause the Titan to turn left instead of blowing up, vice versa for the right wing.
- After stealing a Titan, it is possible to fly over Fort Zancudo airspace without getting a wanted level.
- The Titan is one of the most versatile aircraft in the game; despite its large size, it can be landed almost anywhere by stalling the plane at low altitudes. This, combined with its speed makes it a very good investment.
- While hard to see, the front gear surpasses the fuselage when activated, because it's mean to be activated in a straight position, not with a front 90º degree.
- Oddly enough, due to a minor graphic glitch, sometimes the bay doors for the front landing gear may remain stuck in their open position, even after the player has retracted the landing gear. This glitch seems to occur more often during Online sessions.
- The Titan is one of the few vehicles in the game with no known manufacturer, others being the Cargo Plane and the 747 jet, although the 747 could be manufactured by Western Company as it's the in-game counterpart of Boeing.
- If a player pops the tires on one of the rear landing gear assemblies, they simply disappear.
- The Andromada, the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas equivalent.
- Cargo Plane, another similar plane also in GTA V.
