In gameplay terms, these tend to be on scale of nuclear weapons on how destructive they are to enemy forces, especially clusters of fixed installations (such as bases), due to their extreme range, power and difficulty in protecting oneself from.

In terms of strategy gameplay, these tend to be "game enders" (along with nuclear weaponry) as long as their power is not downplayed from what they would have in reality.
