Humanity's homeworld is the planet Earth located in the Solar System. It is the third planet from the Sun and the only planet to naturally support life within the solar system.
Humans have a robust and hardy composition and stand bipedally. Featuring an array of ten digits on their graspers they are capable of using tools to great effect.
Human technology is inadequate in comparison with alien tech, but it's constantly advancing and adapting.
Human tactics mainly follow from a long history of coordinated military strategy that seems to vary between groups and even individuals. They vary from fleeing in terror to organised retaliation in the face of death, often unsucessfully but sometimes with unexpectedly effective methods.
Human weapons are conventional ballistic and explosive weapons which are primitive in comparison to alien weaponry. Conventional weaponry is still able to harm and kill aliens, however. New advances in weaponry will come from research of captured alien tech which may in time place humans on an equal footing with the aliens.
