...tactical nuke yields are 0.3 - 100 kilotons. Generally strategic nukes (ICBMs) are not bigger than 5 megatons under any circumstances because most of the explosive power goes upward anyway unless buried in solid ground when detonated - (bunker buster).
The larger yield weapons are good for buried installations in BB applications. One BB @ 1-5 megatons would likely collapse every tunnel in 2-7 mile radius from ground zero. So you could take out an entire underground city/laboratory (Iranians take note - Israel has such weapons and the ability to deliver them on target multiple times).
