The paper is devoted to an experimental study of laminar-turbulent transition in supersonic boundary layers on swept wings at Mach 2. The experiments were fulfilled in the low nose supersonic wind tunnel T-325 of Khristianovich Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics on the models with supersonic or subsonic leading edges. The transition location was determined using a constant temperature hot-wire anemometer. while experiments for the case of a supersonic leading edge are a continuation of previous studies, then for the case of a subsonic leading edge, the first data have been obtained that show the possibility of carrying out studies on the development of unstable perturbations. It was obtained that transition take place parallel to the leading edge for both models. The destabilizing effect of the surface curvature of the model on the position of the laminar-turbulent transition for the case of a supersonic leading edge was confirmed. This experimental data is the room for further investigation.
