Trained to man any position on a Maggot, be it driver, gunner, loader or even diesel mechanic. A four man team can be completely self efficient out in the battle field but even a two man team can successfully do the job.

  • The W.O.R.M.S.' filecard says that the Maggot usually operates with a crew of four, but can get by with just two. Of course, the toy actually only included one.
  • Working names included "Crabs," "Roaches," "Slugs" and "Grubs."[2]
