    Megatron chose Rhinox to become Tankor because of the Maximal's muscle (military tactical planning came later on by accident and made Tankor a traitor, so it doesn't count).  Silverbolt was chosen to become Jetstorm due to his sense of honor in fighting for (from his viewpoint) just causes.  So where does that leave Thrust?  Why Waspinator's spark?

    I think that the first three Vehicon Generals were the exact opposite to what they're sparks/personallity/image actually were.

    Tankor: Stupid                                                                        Rhinox:Genius

    Jetstorm: Doesn't believe in honor                                            Silver Bolt: Very Honorable

    Thrust: "tough Biker Bot"                                                         Waspinator: weakest transformer in the history  of all                                                                                                transformers.

    Does that help at all?

    That's how I saw it Megatron made them their complete opposite I think as a joke and so the Maximals didn't figure out who they were.

    Well, maybe someone with a pen was controlling his actions....

    just kidding. He probably used the sparks of the Maximals for the Generals first because they had the most connections to optimus. I mean, if the Maximals found out about the generals, they wouldn't be so quick to destroy them.

    To add to this thread...

    "Megatron: Mind your manners. I rescued your spark from oblivion. I chose you as my general for a reason.
    Blackarachnia: Yeah! To satisfy his twisted sense of humour. Don't listen to him.
    Megatron: You are a creature of honor, Silverbolt. You fight for just causes. I gave you such a cause."

    He kinda said that in the first post. I think he kinda chose them as a spare of the moment, "first thing comes to mind" thing. It was only 4 maximals that he fought in the beast wars. Why not use some sparks that he was familiar with. Rhinox brilliant and loyal strategist, Silverbolt was post boy for honor and loyalty and waspinator was loyal and probably the last spark he extracted since he arrived to cybertron by floating in space until he found it.
