Compressible module in Code_Saturne for supersonic flows

We are going to carry out some RANS (probably LES as well) simulations to capture the long transients of supersonic jet flows (Mach number ~ 5.0). As far as I know, the compressible module in Code_Saturne is still likely to be a pressure based segregated solver. Is there anyone who has compared this with a density based solver (e.g. those in Fluent, OpenFOAM) for such kind of flows? I'm just wondering how about the performance of the compressible solver in Code_Saturne and are there any limitations?

Best regards,
