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, and from Greece to the United Kingdom. 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, as well as some of the more significant, newer additions such as the United Kingdom.

Battlefield 2Edit

In Battlefield 2, the European Union fights alongside the United States of America against China and the Middle Eastern Coalition. They appeared in Battlefield 2: Euro Force as a playable faction.

BackgroundEdit

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.

The WarEdit

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.

TriviaEdit

  • The EU in Battlefield 2 has two MBTs (Main Battle Tank) while the other factions have only one MBT.
  • In Battlefield 2142, the EU kit textures are labeled as US soldiers rather than as EU soldiers, whereas the PAC is labeled as PAC only. This is because the early setting of Battlefield 2142 was about a war between the US and the PAC on a different planet. This is confirmed from one of the earlier pieces of map concept art labelled "North Mountain Pass" which showed multiple moons close to the atmosphere which obviously indicates that the environment is not of earth but of another planet. This concept art image is one of many on a recently made YouTube video slideshow, made by a fan of the game, showing off some rare concept art of the game (the "North Mountain Pass" image being at the timecode of 1:21). The original images came from an old thread on the EA forums, but the thread was one of the many affected by the hacking which replaced all post's prior to the hacking with "LOL own3d :)". This decision parallels the decision early on in Battlefield 2's development, where the Russian forces were replaced by the Middle Eastern Coalition.
