Length: 92 feet, 11 inches

Still quite similar to the Delta vehicles which preceded it, the Delta C introduced a modified third stage which improved performance.

The upgraded third stage allowed the Delta C to carry a 900-pound payload to low-Earth orbit or a 180-pound payload to geostationary transfer orbit.
