Over the years YAMAS invented many unique undercover techniques. In this photo, one operator is seen pushing a small food cart, while underneath the cover is another YAMAS operator, waiting for a green light. In the proper time the hidden operator push the food plate aside (the plate can be seen in the left side of the cart), and pop up with a weapon in hand ready for use. Other then surprise, another advantage of this tactic is that while the exposed operator pushing the cart is limited in his choice of weapons, the hidden operator can carry a more potent firepower, such as a SMG or a CAR15.
