Three engines on the first stage in a triangular configuration. Is that a first? The Atlas had three engines, but in a linear configuration.

Used on STS orbiting vehicles. In terms of design versus flown there are several designs drafted but only STS has flown. I personally do not count Atlas because two are high thrust booster engines ehich are jettisoned before the central one and one is ground to vacuum sustainer engine.

Doh! Completely forgot about the Space Shuttle. Of course, that had two large boosters lifting it off the pad, while TL-2 is a single core.

The JAXA H3 launcher have a variant (H3-30) with 3 LE-9 engines arranged in triangular configuration in the 1st stage.

Although not obvious, the R-16 / R-36 / Tsiklon missiles and rockets had this too. It was obscured by the fact that each engine had two nozzles.

Chinese aerospace company #SpacePioneer plans to launch a rocket comparable to SpaceX’s #Falcon9 next year.
The two-stage Tianlong-3 rocket is fueled by kerosene-liquid oxygen. It has a #reusable first stage, which uses seven TH-12 engines. Its second stage uses a TH-12V engine.
