South China Sea (May 26, 2006) - A ship Deployed Surface Target (SDST) is lowered into the South China Sea from the deck of amphibious dock landing ship USS Tortuga (LSD 46).

Tortuga is currently participating in exercise Southeast Asia Cooperation Against Terrorism (SEACAT). SEACAT is a weeklong exercise designed to highlight the value of information sharing and multi-national coordination within a scenario that gives participating navies practical maritime interception training opportunities.
