The European Council was a body of leaders based in Europe during Great World War III in 1972 that was composed of the leaders of some of the major Western European nations. It is the political body of the Allies in the European theatre of war which has a strong infuence to other European countries.
After the Soviet Union's invasion of the United States, President Michael Dugan called upon the assistance of the European Council to fight the Soviet threat. The council consisted of major Allied European powers, including Britain, Germany and France. Initially, the European leaders were reluctant to join the War against the Soviet Union. After the Nuclear strike on Chicago in Last Chance, the Europeans were more receptive to the idea of the possibility of an aid package for the United States.

At first, the Council wanted the service of Agent Tanya in exchange for men, munitions, aircraft and vehicles. However, Tanya convinced them to use the new Commander to strike two Soviet Nuclear missile silo launchers that were keeping the Europeans out of the conflict on the German-Polish border in Dark Night.
The Allied Commander was happy to control Tanya once more, as in her opinion, by the time General Lyon was trained to do so, the Soviets would have already launched the Nuclear missiles. After they were eliminated, the European Allies joined the conflict in force for Operation: Liberty to retake Soviet-occupied Washington DC.
After the Great World War II and Europe was in ruins, the European Union had only twenty-four countries to pull out from the summit. Only three countries had stood in the place of the union: France, Germany and Great Britain. They replaced the organization and called it, the European Council by themselves. When the Soviet Missile Base was in disarray, the council provided aid to the Americans and Albert Einstein contacted them about making new experiments for the Allies.
The council only appears at the start of Operation: Dark Night. Their units are seen in many other missions soon after the Missiles were disfunctioned. Grand Cannons of the French army appeared before in Chicago, but were used by the Allies during the invasion and retaking of San Francisco. Snipers did some attacks in the Ural Mountains, notably at the Alamo in Texas and played a role in Seattle as the Tank Destroyer played a role in the Black Forest and near the Great Pyramids of Egypt.
