American orbital launch vehicle. The 1954 design for the Atlas as contracted for by the Air Force used three main engines to power a 110 metric ton rocket able to send a 1400 kg nuclear warhead over a 10,200 km range. CEP was 3700 m. The missile actually delivered six years later would have the same dimensions and launch mass, but 63% more range and four times better accuracy.

Status: Design 1954. Payload: 1,360 kg (2,990 lb). Thrust: 725.00 kN (162,986 lbf). Gross mass: 109,000 kg (240,000 lb). Height: 23.00 m (75.00 ft). Diameter: 3.05 m (10.00 ft).

Maximum range: 10,200 km (6,300 mi). CEP: 3.70 km (2.20 mi).
