Usually attack aircraft and fighters don't have the greatest range, due to the availablity of mid-air refueling and external tanks. Transports usually have similar ranges to similar civilian aircraft. Tankers have greatly varying ranges due to the amount of fuel offloaded. Other special aircraft have greatly diverse ranges.

If you have some specific aircraft you'd like to know, I'll give ya some good hard numbers.

C-17:
Ferry range- 5095nm
Operational radius with 81,000lb payload (3200ft TO, 2700ft LDG, 2800ft TO, 2600ft LDG)- 500nm
Range with 150,000lb payload (7600ft TO, 2900ft LDG)- 2800nm

F-15E:
Max Range- 2400nm
Combat radius- 685nm

F-15C:
Max range (with external fuel tanks)- 3100nm
Combat radius (on intercept mission)- 1060nm

I don't have data for the F-22


*Combat/Operational radius:
As with many military operations, aircraft must fly to an area, complete goals (land and drop off supplies, bomb a target, shoot down an aircraft, ...) and return to their original base, without refueling along the way. This number is how far a plane can fly from base, complete the mission, and return.
