BVR Missile Ranges
So please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the range of the medium-range missiles in DCS goes like this: R-27ER/AIM-120C>R-27ET/AIM-120B>R-77/Super 530D>R-27R/T/AIM-7M.

more or less right

Depends which range you mean. ER and ET are actually one and the same missile with different seeker (semi-active vs IR) so in theory their range in terms of flight envelope should be the same. The 77 I'd put in the same boat as 27R/7M while the 530D in between those short sticks and 120B.

about R vs T, all sources always give the T slightly less range, don't ask me why

Being fire-and-forget for an IR missile it's natural the effective range to depend on the seeker/target IR signature while the semi-active depends on radar lock. Other than that the R-27E() missile variants share the same body (rocket motor, warhead, controls).

The IR variants have a less aerodynamic nose, so they will have a little less range than the radar variants with their pointy radome.
