Review Images by Gundam Guy
Gundam AGE-2 Normal [Spoilers Beware] is the variant of the AGE-1 Gundam AGE-1 Normal,[citation needed] appearing in Mobile Suit Gundam AGE. The unit is piloted by Asem Asuno.
A next generation Gundam that is built based on the combat data of the Gundam AGE-1.[1][2] The unit is designed as a high speed combat unit, able to turn into Strider Mode, where it is able transform into a fighter-like form to fly at high speeds. The unit also possesses an alternate form, which is accessed by separating the limbs of the mobile suit, similar to the AGE-1.
Aside from its speed, the AGE-2 Normal possess a Hyper DODS Rifle and a much sturdier shield along with a beam saber for close combat. The AGE-System installed in the mobile suit allows it to gather combat data to "evolve" the Gundam when needed.

HGUC 1/144 RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee [Destroy Mode]
Review Images by Gundam Guy
The RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 "Banshee" [Spoilers Beware] (aka Banshee) is a mobile suit that appears in Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. It is the sister unit of the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam, built alongside the Unicorn under the Earth Federation's UC Project. The unit was originally piloted by Marida Cruz, but was later assigned to Riddhe Marcenas of the Earth Federation.  (via Gundam Wiki)
After its completion alongside the Unicorn Gundam, the Banshee was stationed on Earth by the Augusta Research Lab and tested for atmospheric combat. Rather than that of a Unicorn, the Banshee's motif is that of a lion, illustrated with gold accents on the forehead, a golden collar to signify a lion's mane, and a much more elaborate horn/V-fin.
The Banshee's armor is all-black and its psychoframe emits a golden-orange glow when the NT-D is activated, giving it the nickname "psychoflame". Although the Banshee lacks the Unicorn's distinctive La+ System, its performance in atmospheric combat is vastly superior, pressumably because of the inclusion of additional thrusters and propellant storage, or a significan reconfiguring of the suit's operating system to account for Earth's gravity and the atmosphere's frictional resistance.
Combat improvements were made according to Unicorn Gundam's battle data, which had been relayed to the Augusta Research Lab. However, the two Gundams have no major operating differences. Aside from lacking the Unicorn's La+ operating system, the Banshee's raw performance is equal to that of the Unicorn. In other words, any modification to the Banshee (i.e. atmospheric combat performance) could also be applied to the Unicorn, making both suits equal in ability. (via Gundam Wiki)

Endless Waltz: The Glory of the Losers - Chapter 14-15 by Zeonic|Scanlations

Translation & Editing: Zeonic|Scanlations
Operation Pleiades, whose objective is to completely dissolve the United Earth Sphere Alliance in one swift move. With the Alliance Forces Chiefs of Staff gathered at the New Edwards base on the west coast of North America, the deficiency in the chain of command at several principal military bases left them open to the synchronized, simultaneous attacks of OZ’s elite units. The mastermind behind this meticulously orchestrated operation was Colonel Une. Furthermore, while the Gundams’ actions were an unanticipated anomaly during its execution, their gathering at the New Edwards base contributed to the success of the operation.
