Need help identifying this ROV

I’ve a picture below. It’s called a TITAN COMMANDO. Found this at a garage sale. Could not find any info online about it or the manufacturer. Does anyone happen to know more?

Titan rings a bell, several inshore inspection class units. No plate on the unit? My old trade books are in storage so can’t check now but a quick scan on a few well known sites with old kit turned up this info:

One listed here for sale …

Was listed in “Remotely Operated Vehicles of the World”, Oilfield Publications Ltd 1996. That is still a bit too recent for me, my main work with inspection class ROV’s was the '80’s. Hope this helps anyway.

Thank you so much. This helps a lot! Going to do some more investigating. I’ll let you know what I find.

No worries @jasen. Good luck with the investigations !
