From Entertainment Weekly:
“There are some similarities,” Whitaker says in an interview with EW. “I don’t know if I should tell you that.
It’s more about tactics than philosophy. They fought against the Separatists together in season 5 of the animated series The Clone Wars, but when Rogue One picks up just before the events of the original Star Wars, they are very far from being on the same side.
Gerrera, a militia warrior from the occupied planet Onderon, parted ways with the Sith lord when he was still a bellicose young Jedi named Anakin Skywalker. Now they are sworn enemies across the galactic divide, although both are hardliners who aren’t timid about using brutal tactics in the fight to control the galaxy.
They share other traits as well, such as a reliance on technology to stay alive.
“This is his armored suit for flight, but also for maintenance,” Whitaker says of Gerrera’s bulbous chest plate. “He’s been through many conflicts and many wars, so it’s also about [repairing] some of the many injuries he’s had. He wears it all the time.”
