Does anyone know if there's a reference out there, website, etc. that show patches for the Titan and Delta ELV launches?

The Titan 34D patch... what launch was that for again? April 18, 1986 or August 28, 1985? I cannot seem to find any concrete reference.

Editor's note: Threads merged.

Watched the WGS-4 launch and was wondering if anyone had any info on this patch? Any availability or does someone have access to a few? Thanks in advance!

I have a large collection of Delta II and IV; Atlas I, II, III and V; Titan II, III/34D and IV; and Pegasus, Taurus and Minotaur patches. The collection is by no means complete due to rarity, affordability and lack of knowledge of the actual existence of some of these patches. Additionally, there may be more than one patch for each mission.

Usually, there is patch provided by the payload sponsor/contractor; sometimes, patch is provided by the launch vehicle contractor; and since the early 90's, Air Force organizations (launch squadrons or space wings) have been creating patches.

I have figured out one way to solve some of these "problems" by collecting scans or photos of these patches or even a decal representative of the patch. Anytime a patch comes on Ebay, I save a copy of the photo, in case I don't win the auction. I wish I had done this much earlier. I have also used Worthpoint to look for past action photos.

I was wondering if we can crowd source this to expand the database by trading and sharing patches/photos.

The file named "ELV Patch Compendium" is a summary of my patch database. The first page is an explanation of the data entries.

In the end, this is my ranking in order of desirability:

  • patch
  • patch image
  • decal of patch
  • decal of patch image
  • other mission representation in decal or image form.
I want the actual patch but will eventually settle for the others.

Except for the Titan IV, the other two seem to have been moved. Is there a new URL for them?

On Edit: Never mind. The files posted later at 06-13-2012 05:14 PM are better. Thanks!
