A computational study of a supersonic flow in the base region and the nearest wake of a cylindrical body moving at a supersonic speed have been carried out. A mathematical model of high-enthalpy flows is presented. In this case, the "prehistory" of the flow was taken into account, i.e., the configuration of the computational domain was as close as possible to the real one. The use of various turbulence models for calculating flow in the base region and the nearest wake was analyzed. The following turbulence models were considered: 1) the Spalart --- Allmaras model; 2) SST model; 3) standard k--ε model; 4) k--ε model with compressibility correction; 5) k--ε RNG (renormalized group) model; 6) k--ε Realizable model; 7) standard Reynolds Stress (RS) model; 8) RS BSL (Reynolds stress baseline) model. Based on a comparison of the calculation results with experimental data, it is shown that: 1) when calculating the flow in the base region and in the wake of the vehicle, it is very important to take into account the "prehistory" of the flow, i.e., to calculate the flow around the entire vehicle; 2) the best match was obtained using Reynolds Stress models and the k--ε RNG model
