|Appearance(s)||Grand Theft Auto V|
The Titan is a cargo aircraft based on the Lockheed C-130H. Along with the Cargo Plane, it is one of the aircraft used by the military and Merryweather Security. As with other aircraft in the game, its landing gear can be retracted at will. Owing to Grand Theft Auto V's revamped vehicle damage system, collisions with the environment and explosions can destroy its wings and engines, rendering it useless.
In Grand Theft Auto Online, a Titan owned by Merryweather appears as the focus of the cooperative mission A Titan of a Job, where it must be hijacked from Los Santos International Airport and taken to Sandy Shores Airfield. The scene, first featured in the GTA Online reveal trailer, depicts the characters escaping with the cargo door lowered.
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.
- Fort Zancudo: Parked in the runway area. A four-star wanted level will be obtained after entering the base, making the task of obtaining it highly dangerous.
- Spawns at the Los Santos International Airport and Sandy Shores Airfield in GTA Online after Rank 32.
- There is a big T and N on the tail. Could be the Titan's name (TITAN)
- It is advised to fly low when stealing the Titan from Fort Zancudo. This is because the fort will see the plane, which will immediately have heat-seeking rockets sent to shoot down the player, not to mention the Titan's low "missile dodging" skill. Also, chances are that Rhino tanks will get a shot at the player.
- 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 Luxor and the beta Hydra.
- The cargo door can be opened by punching it.
- Storing it in any hangar is not advisable, as the plane will spawn with one of its wings sticking into the hangar wall, and then explode. If one wishes to keep a Titan, they must quick save while in the plane.
- The Titan is based on the real-life Hercules; the Titans are figures in Greek mythology, while Hercules is the Roman name for the Greek hero Heracles.
- Whilst being very difficult, it is possible to transport cars in the titan by parking the first inside the cargo area and then using a small car and wedging it in such a way that is blocks the ramp.
- The Titan can carry vehicles on GTA Online. All that is needed is for a player to be inside the car the titan is carrying so they can accelerate further into the cargo bay when necessary. This is very dangerous for all parties, though, due to a glitch that creates friction between the car and the Titan's interior; as the car moves around, the Titan can become heavily damaged. Eventually its propellers will shut off and the plane will have to be abandoned before it crashes. (It is still possible for the cargo vehicle to survive the crash, however.)
- 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.
- The wreckage of a Titan can be found lying at the bottom of the ocean just off the western coast near Fort Zancudo with a variety of weapons scattered among the debris. The plane wreck lies in shallow water, mainly situated on the very edge of a steep, rocky underwater cliff covered by coral reefs. The front section of the plane, including the nose and cockpit seems to have broken off and is resting further down in deeper waters at the very bottom off the deep end where the plane is situated. It is assumed that this is the result of an unsuccessful takeoff from Fort Zancudo.
- 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 means it will be extremely difficult to obtain without getting it destroyed, or being defeated by the army.
- The Andromada, the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas equivalent.
- Cargo Plane, another similar plane also in GTA V.
