In this thread, there'll be Public EARLY Titan and atlas satellite-launcher operator and launcher manuals, plus 1990s Long March 2 and 3 rocket export version satellite user's manuals.
Public atlas rocket manuals are in the 1st post of this thread.

Atlas was the first us long-range rocket, it was a 1.5 stage design with an ultra light fuel container, which is its interesting feature.
Depending on this feature, the original rocket was thoroughly modified to a completely different rocket atlas v, establishing a rocket family.
Atlas V is currently in operation, but it's completely different from atlas early version.
Public early Atlas manuals are in there in this folder:

Atlas V is a thoroughly improved rocket, which is completely different, these atlas v manuals are published by ULA official website Atlas V:

In the second post of this thread, there're public early titan launcher's manuals.
1669471367760.png
Titan I was the second American 2-stage liquid rocket following the rocket Vanguard, and titan ii was an upgraded version of titan I.
Titan I spec:
Size
Height31 m (102 ft)
Diameter3.05 m (10.0 ft)
Mass105,140 kg (231,790 lb)
Stages2
1st stage Engines1 LR87-AJ-3
Thrust1,900 kN (430,000 lbf)
Specific impulse290 seconds
Burn time140 seconds
PropellantRP-1/LOX
2nd stage Engines1 LR91-AJ-3
Thrust356 kN (80,000 lbf)
Specific impulse308 seconds
Burn time155 seconds
PropellantRP-1/LOX
Which means that titan I has similar characteristics with Atlas I (First generation), but it's more efficient because of its more advanced second-stage design.
Titan I also had a capability of satellite-launching similar with atlas rocket, but unfortunately the first generation of Titan did not converted into a satellite launcher, which was a pity.
However, some old titan tech manuals could be a historical reference for satellite launchers, many of which were unclassified.

In the third post of this thread, there're 1990s old version long march 2 and 3 (export version) public satellite user's manuals.
Long march 2 and 3 are the first rockets of China approved to serve the overseas satellite users as customers.
They have similar capacity with atlas and titan ii carrier rockets.
