What Tank/Vehicle did Rommel command from?

I'm trying to figure out what tank Erwin Rommel used as a command vehicle during his campaigns, specifically during his time with the Afrikakorps. Sources would be appreciated.

    British AEC Armoured Command Vehicles, nicknamed Mammoths by Rommel.

    During the campaign in the Low Countries and France, Rommel's command vehicle was a modified Panzer III tank, and this vehicle was often seen on the front lines; at times, he would also ride with Colonel Karl Rothenburg in a Panzer IV
