The Rommel 1911 is a primary weapon for the Soldier class in Blitz Brigade. It is in a way a part-successor to the Madford SMG, mainly because it took its place in the shop after the Madford was removed. For stats, the damage is on the higher side when compared to other assault rifles, but the rate of fire is lower, and is the same as the Shipley 9mm. The critical chance is good, with average ammo capacity and average range. In battle, the accuracy is very good, helped by the slower rate of fire, and because of this, can make medium to far range engagements more easier. Overall, this is a very good weapon, and could be the closest the assault rifle could get to a sniper rifle, behind the Rosebud (or possibly Reckoner). It is based on the German Sturmgewehr-44 (or MP 43 / MP 44) assault rifle, one of the first proper assault rifles, and may be named after German field marshal Erwin Rommel, commonly nicknamed "The Desert Fox" for commanding the Afrika Korps during the African Campaign of World War II.
