Desert Rommel is the leader of a group of Zeon remnants that waged guerrilla warfare against the Earth Federation on Earth and a minor antagonist in the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ.
After the One Year War ended, Rommel continued to lead the Rommel Corps in guerrilla warfare against the Earth Federation Forces in Africa. Hiding in a small desert town, Rommel and his men raided Federation bases for food and supplies.
The Rommel Corps survived to the First Neo Zeon War, which saw Axis Zeon, a group of Zeon Remnants based from the Axis Zeon base, invading Earth. The Rommel Corps thus allied with the Axis forces and engaged in warfare against the Anti-Earth Union Group, who were the only viable opposition to Axis Zeon's domination of the Earth Sphere.
The Rommel Corps fought the AEUG's Gundam Team, despite their mobile suits being vastly outdated compared to AEUG's. Rommel's mastery of desert warfare gave him an advantage over the AEUG initially but the AEUG were eventually able to plow through and destroy Rommel's forces, leaving Rommel as the only remaining soldier. Rommel then attempted a suicide attack on the MS-010 ZZ Gundam only to be killed by Judau Ashta using the ZZ Gundam's Hyper Beam Saber.
