- The Maggot is a Cobra vehicle.
The Cobra Maggot serves as a forward attack vehicle, mobile command center and long range artillery, all in one. With a four man crew the Maggot can easily provide support for itself using its mobile attack unit, plot trajectory from its command center and destroy any target with its long range 155mm canon. Maggot operators known as W.O.R.M.S. are trained on all of the Maggot’s functions making them interchangeable and almost impossible to stop. The Maggot is certainly one of the most lethal ground attack vehicles in Cobra’s arsenal.
The Maggot is a vehicle that can separate into three components: an ATV tank, a battlefield control vehicle and a stationary artillery emplacement. The ATV (anti-tank vehicle) is the forward unit towing the other two sections to battle. It is armed with a "H.E.A.T." (High Efficiency Anti-Tank) laser cannon as its primary weapon with a front machine gun as supplement. Alongside the laser cannon is a Mag-61 radar that gives it high accuracy in fire. It has a 1,000 hp engine that provides it the strength to pull the huge weight of the other two components despite its small size.
Although bearing heavy armor, the battlefield control vehicle serves more as a mobile command outpost and reconnaissance. The unit itself, though it may carry the cannon's ammunition, does not have any offensive capabilities. The artillery emplacement is armed with a long-range 155mm cannon. The artillery used are rocket-assisted projectiles, giving them a much longer range.

When Snaptrap attacked a swamp in Georgia in 2013, WORMS 2111 brought a Maggot in to provide Interrogator with backup. It performed well enough that Interrogator suggested increasing the budget for Maggot maintenance.
