Description

Coverage from six tracking cameras of the first in-silo launch of a liquid fueled ICBM, Titan VS-1, code named "Silver Saddle," and carrying a dummy second stage from the Silo Launch Test Facility (SLTF). The test was to confirm the silo launcher configuration and the feasibility of launching from within an underground silo. Tracking camera coverage from two locations with 96-inch and 14-inch lenses at 48 and 72 FPS of Titan VS-1 launch showing flames escaping from the two silo ducts, missile emerging and climbing.
