Flow discharge at the blunt trailing edge of bodies immersed into supersonic stream alters significantly the downstream aerodynamic characteristics. This paper studies the changes in the base region topology for a wide range of purge ejection, using Unsteady Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes solutions. At low purge rate the base pressure increases, resulting in a reduction of the trailing edge shock wave intensity. Supersonic purge flows diminishes the base pressure and thus strengthens the shock
