The European Union is a political union of twenty-eight sovereign states located in Europe. It was signed into current form in 1993. Members range from Poland to Portugal. The states are unified in economics, with the EuroZone, through using a common currency, the euro (€), and participating in having a centralized bank. Member states are also unified in politics, where officials are elected every five years and laws are abided by universally through various constitutions and treaties. The military is not unified, but the EU is allocated forces for internal affairs.
The EU was formed initially by France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Italy, in the 1950s. Its range has since expanded significantly to include most of the European continent. However, the Union continues to be under the heavy influence of, largely, France and Germany.
The EU was initially uninvolved in The War. It is implied that they were at war with Russia (the nature of the conflict being unstated) before their entry into The War. However, after signing a treaty with Russia, they entered The War on the American side, launching attacks into mainland China as well as deep into MEC territory.
The EU's equipment and armaments are comprised of a number of nations, with soldiers bearing accents from those nations. Predominantly, they are comprised of French, British, and German soldiers, with their weapons and vehicles being mostly from these countries, although the involvement of smaller nations such as Greece is mentioned on occasion.
While Battlefield 2's War is not given much background (specifically dates and years), the Euro Force Trailer states that the EU declared war on the Middle Eastern Coalition and Peoples Republic of China at 4 AM on February 15th.
Soon after declaring war, the EU launched an assault named Operation Smoke Screen in order to capture strategic assets of what was left of an oil field in what was to be called one of the most brutal battles of the war.
On February 18th, after the treaty with the Russian Federation, the EU moved its military to a part of the Great Wall of China in an attempt to link up with American forces on the coast, engaging PLA forces upon arrival.
On February 19th, the EU launched an Assault on Taraba Quarry in an attempt to break through a MEC interception force which was sent to stop them from rescuing an American Division cut off from the frontlines. The only unit explicitly stated to be there is a Hellenic armored division of Leopard 2s.
Classes and WeaponsEdit
As stated above, the EU forces use a variety of weapons from different European nations, as well as equipment used by the Americans. The Europeans predominantly wear khaki clothing. Classes with body armor wear helmets with protective goggles, while the engineer with hats, the Medic/Special Forces clases wear red berets instead and the Sniper classes wear ghillie suits, similar to all base game factions.
The EU, as mentioned above, uses vehicles originating from the various member states of the Union -- the main battle tanks, helicopter, and one of their jets are from European states -- although some vehicles in use are from the USMC, specifically the light vehicles, APCs, and one of their two jets.

- The EU in Battlefield 2 has two MBTs (Main Battle Tank) while the other factions have only one MBT.
- In Battlefield 2142, some EU assets are labeled as US, hinting that the United States was an original faction. This parallels the decision early on in Battlefield 2's development to replace the Russian forces with the Middle Eastern Coalition.
