"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."
Elitás Travel description.

The Titan is a military transport aircraft featured in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto V

The Titan is a cargo aircraft with four propellers, entirely based on the Lockheed C-130 Hercules. 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 and has two different registration numbers on its tail: TN-100 and AN-973.

It features a rear cargo bay, which, at earlier updates, could be opened by punching it, however this has been removed in a patch. Its capacity of 10 people is the second highest capacity in GTA V, behind the Miljet, which can carry 16.

Players access the plane by pulling the main door in a similar fashion to the Shamal, going up the stairs and taking seat on the aircraft's cabin. Only the pilot and co-pilot enter the plane this way; the other eight passengers will simply teleport into the Titan's cargo bay.

Grand Theft Auto V

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.

In other words, 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. However, one must consider that the plane's profile and its slow speed makes it an easy target for homing missiles and weaponized aircraft.

In addition to this, the Titan also has superior braking power, allowing it to land and come to a halt at a relatively fast pace. It is also very good at gliding, although its heavy weight means that initiating a successful glide can be difficult.

The Titan is powered by, according to the website and seen in-game, turboprop engines, evidenced by the distinctive cranking sound when starting the plane and the heat effect produced in the exhausts of each engine, similar to those of a jet-powered aircraft (Shamal, Luxor, etc). Its mass in the files is, oddly, practically the same as the Cargo Plane, even if both planes differs vastly in size and performs differently.

GTA V - How to safely get the Titan

The easiest way to get the Titan in GTA V.


Grand Theft Auto V

  • Fort Zancudo: Up to four Titans can be found parked onto the tarmac by the base's runway. A four-star wanted level will be obtained after entering the base, which will cause Rhinos and P-996 LAZERs to chase the player, making the task of obtaining it highly dangerous. Occasionally, a fifth Titan can spawn at the western end of the runway, taking off shortly after spawning before flying northward. In order to avoid the fighter jets, the player must maintain low altitude while flying away, although at the risk of being hit by a Rhino tank.

Grand Theft Auto Online



  • Titans are figures in Greek mythology, while its real life counterpart, the Hercules C-130, has the name of a Greek demigod.
  • The Titan may be a reference to the Titan Corporation, a real world military contractor that competes with Blackwater (now known as Academi), the real world equivalence to Merryweather Security.

Grand Theft Auto V


The Titan in Max Payne 3.

  • 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 Hydra. The Titan pictured has the same current desert camo pattern but is grey which is possibly a beta color.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Clipping the left wing on the Titan on certain structures will cause the Titan to turn left instead of blowing up and vice versa for the right wing.
  • 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. Similarly, the nose gear's wheel seems to clip through the fuselage when used, although it rarely happens.
  • If a player pops the tires on one of the rear landing gear assemblies, they simply disappear.
  • The Titan makes the loudest explosion in the game. It is louder than the Jet, which should technically make a louder noise.
