USNAD was supported by the Mobile Support Team, based at the Naval Amphibious Base in Coronado, CA. NAD (Naval Advisory Detachment), a unit of SOG (Special Operations Group, or Studies and Observation Group, depending on the level of political correctness) conducted clandestine operations in the waters of Vietnam from a base in Danang. The main craft used in these operations was the Norweigan designed 80' PT boat named "Tjeld", translated to "Nasty". The US Navy designation of these boats is PTF-Nasty.
