Looks like the good ol' Eye Zack to me, which appears to already be noted here by MAHQ.

But it's got a forearm guard with Neo Zeon style insignia on it, like the other new designs in Unicorn.
I don't suppose there's been any design art for this variation printed yet, though...

If you look closely the arm guard is actually looks like part of the weapon it's holding in that hand. It's probably a hard point mounted gun. Also it is different from the EWACS HiZack in that the head unit isn't attached to the RADOME which is actually connected to the backpack in the picture Asterphage provided. But that could be just because the art style of Katoki.

Whee, I'm on vacation but I'll throw my two cents in anyways. (I'ma in Chris' state kekekeke... time to invade his home)

It is indeed the Eye Zack as Homeless pointed out. They were first introduced into the series around Section 3 of the Paulu Capture Battle. In this particular chapter, if I'm remembering correctly, it's piloted by Gael in his attempt to go to the Nahal Argama on his own. It's also equipped with a Zaku machine gun in this case as well.

@Red Zaku

Remembering the image from the actual magazine, those sleeves are not apart of the weapon itself. The artwork in this case isn't Katoki, it's the new artist :)

I'll do the weapons later. I think the new gun (the one that's not a Katokified Jegan gun) is an "Assault Carbine".

And the profile says...

Quote:
RGM-96X JESTA

Overall height: 19.3 meters
Base weight: 24.8 tons
Full weight: 57.2 tons
Generator output: 2,710 kW
Thruster output: 89,030 kg
Sensor radius: 14,200 meters
Armor materials: titanium alloy ceramic composite, Gundarium alloy

A high-class mobile suit of the Jegan series developed by Anaheim Electronics to support the RX-0 Unicorn, whose operating time in Destroy Mode is limited. Although it is essentially a product of the UC Project, this fact has been kept hidden even within the military organization. Aside from escorting the RX-0, its main mission is expected to be suppressing ordinary enemy forces, thus producing "situations" in which the Unicorn Gundam can directly confront enemy Newtype weapons.

Caption: Grenade launchers are installed on the waist, and a beam saber on the forearm. In the story, 12 machines are assigned to the Ra Cailum team for testing and evaluation, including the Londo Bell's Tri-Stars.

support vehicles:

This is obviously based on Amuro's booster bed from CCA, but it looks like they don't give it a particular name- just "S.F.S." for "Sub Flight System".
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/unicorn/sfs.jpg

This is a hovercraft for ground use- it's called the LCAC, but I didn't see any explanation of what that stands for.

From the unicorn thread in anime forum...

Quote:
Recently, I came to access to a good site with scans of Chinese version of Gundam Ace, which fortunately have the scans of both the novels and the mechanic data. While translating the novel is not possible (heck, there's a whole book to do, and I barely have the time!), I can translate the data from the mechanic data. Although the source I use is not the original version, but since it's the same company who published the Chinese version, I don't think there's an issue. Let's start with the (second) latest one.

Prototype Mobile Armor
AMA-X7 SHAMBLO

-Amphibious prototype MA
-Length: 77.8m (underwater cruiser mode)
-Height: 31.8m (ground combat mode)
-Body weight: 198.6t
-Full weight: 283.9t
-Powerplant output: 21,460kw
-Propulsion (hover jet) thrust: 226, 480kg
-Underwater speed: 36kt
-Ground speed: 142km
-Magnetic induced water jet/ ground-used thermonuclear hover jet/ equipped with small Minovsky type generator
-Sensor effective range: 12,800m (ground)/ 240km (sonar, underwater)
-Armor material: Gundarium alloy

Description: A massive MA developed by Garvey Enterprise(ガーベイ・エンタープライズ), which get supported and aided technically by the Zeon sympathizers. It uses the old MHD propulsion system, a soundless propulsion system, and the Minovsky type generator(s) on its leg(s), hence by using the combination of submersible/hover system, it can archive low noise condition and high mobility. On ground, it can use together its Minovsky type generator and hover jet propulsion to demonstrate surprising agility that do not match its look.

Note 1: Shamblo can use the defensive properties created by its 10 reflective bits and scattering mega particle gun, which can render both solid ammo and beam attacks ineffective.

Note 2: (Underwater cruiser mode shown)Shamblo has a underwater cruiser mode. Due to its stealth, the Federation Navy called it the "Sea Ghost".

Note 3: (MAM-07 Grublo, MA-06 Val-Varo, MA-05 Bigro shown) In can be clearly seen that, when Zeon throw in the high propulsion, high firepower mobile weapon into the battlefield, their battle strategy is to use them to create a breakthrough in the frontline battle.


Here's the rest of the profiles found in the (second) latest mechanical data of Gundam Unicorn...

Quote:
Mass Produced Mobile Suit
AMS-129M ZEE-ZULU

-Amphibious mass production type MS
-Height: 20.3m
-Body weight: 28.9t

Zee-Zulu is the amphibious mobile suit, developed by the remmants of the Neo Zeon. After being tested in space, it was sent to the Zeon sympathizers on Earth. Having the same basic frame with Geara-Zulu, its peripherals have been equipped with specialized underwater equipments such as backpack-type diving device, neck ballast tank, water jet propulsion, underwater-used fin, etc. Its hands, which is equipped with heat knifes made of ceramic polymer composite material, together with its claws, equipped at forearm for close combat uses, makes it look like a lobster, a typical appearance of the amphibious MS.

Note 1: Amphibious MS is typically divided into two types: it either uses a newly designed frame or it uses preexisting frame which equipped with underwater equipments. Zee-Zulu is belongs to the latter type.

Note 2: (RMS-192M Zaku Mariner and AMX-109 Capule shown) Amphibious MS is typically divided into two types: it either uses a newly designed frame or it uses preexisting frame which equipped with underwater equipments. Zee-Zulu has close the gap of appearance between the these two types.

Mass Produced Mobile Suit
RAG-79 AQUA GM
-Amphibious Mass Production Type MS
-Head Height: 18.0m
-Body Weight: 49.5t
-Generator Power: 1,280kW
-Water Jet Thrust: 8,950kg
-Amour Material: Titanium/ceramic composite material

Description: Based on the One Year War's GM, Aqua GM is Federation's underwater use MS. Although being pointed out as being too old at UC0090 era, but the reason for the amphibious MS to exist also becoming increasingly weak. Hence without any new follow-up machine, it's continue to be used till UC0096.

Note 1(Weapons: Harpoon launcher and missiles launcer shown): Aqua GM not only can use harpoon launcher and missiles launcher, it can also use a beam pick axe, designed for close combat.


Quote:
Mass Produced Mobile Suit
RGM-86R GMIII
-Mass production type MS
-Head Height: 18.0m
-Body Weight: 38.6t
-Propulsion Thrust: 81,200kg
-Armour Material: Titanium Alloy/Gundarium Alloy

Description: Earth Federation's main MS. GM III not only can equips equipments on its shoulders or waist, it can also be used as support use MS. Due to its comparatively low performance, it's currently being replaced by it's follow-up MS, RGM-89 Jegan.


That's all for the 13th installation of Gundam UC's Mechanical Data. 1 finished, 13 left. :(

EDIT: Well, I've moved on to the 12th installation. Mark has translated the first page, so I don't feel the need to do the same thing twice. However, I have translated the second page, so here's the text:
Quote:
SUB FLIGHT SYSTEM (picture: two Jegan boarding a base jabber in CCA; a MS (Neo Zeon's Zaku III?) aboard a Base Jabber in ZZ)

S.F.S (Sub Flight System) is a MS support aviation equipment, enable MS to fly by riding upon it. Using S.F.S, MS, which has extremely sloppy movement speed under gravity, can improve its mobility, and hence able to accomplish operation swiftly and solidly.

-Note 1(LCAC shown): Ground use LCAC. Although it use hover jet propulsion, and have no flight capability, it can moves from sea to land smoothly. Its human operated cockpit is located on the bow and starport (aka upper right) of the ship.

-Note 2(S.F.S shown): The new S.F.S in the space use form. Its basic frame is similiar to the hovercraft type. In space, it's mainly used for MS transportation from mothership to the battlefield.


Quote:
Illustration shows 4 Jesta landing on shore and marching forward.

Illustration note 1: Jesta is a hound-orientated machine, designed to assist Unicorn's task force, the "Manhunter". However, Barnage who pilots Unicorn is currently fight together with the Neo Zeon, which may created an hostile confrontation between these two machines.

Illustration note 2: This impression illustration is created for the Jesta design, which didn't really occur in the novel. This scene, where the machines go ashore from the water's edge in one breath and ensure the advantage in the battlefield, which inspired by the special forces such as the US Navy SEAL.

Weapon note 1(long barrel gun/rifle shown): New type of weapon, specially used by Jesta. It's added with acceleration/deflection device, and its barrel is longer than normal.

Weapon note 2(short barrel gun shown): Although Jesta can use GM/Jegan type weaponry, but the assault carbine type weaponry, which is small, have easier handling and rapid fire capability, is more suitable for Jesta's role.

Related machine note (RGM-108 Heavy-gun, DF-03 Gustav-karl, RGM-89 Jegan shown): RGM-89 Jegan acts as standard MS of Federation, and until UC0129 still remains in use at the first line. During this period, although there is replacement machine like James-gun, but lack of major battles caused these machines to be assigned for peace keeping forces and secret service forces. Hence, only the arrival of RMG-109 Heavy-Gun, the small scale MS, does the Federation change its main MS.


2 finished, 12 left.

EDIT 2: Finished the 11th installation.

Quote:
Anti-ship Assault Mobile Suit
RGM-89S STARK JEGAN
-Anti-ship assault MS
-Full height: 19.2m
-Body weight: 28.4t
-Armour material: Titanium alloy ceramic composite material

Description: UC0096, Earth Federation begin to replace the GM series with the RGM-89 Jegan as the new main mobile suit. For a pan-use type mobile suit, Jegan's performance is very stable and excellent. Furthermore, in the era where military power has been diminished, the idea of modifying the original machine's configuration, rather than stressing on creating a new machine to meet the demand of the current situation, has become the main policy of that time. It's in this environment that one of the improved derivative machine, a special configuration of Jegan known as Stark Jegan, is born. By adding extra armour and propellers, the overall performance of Stark Jegan has been increased. Stark Jegan also use the concept of GM III by equipping the support use rocket launcher pack in its shoulders.

Related machine note (RMG-89, CCA-MSV version of RGM-89S, RGM-89J, RGM-89R, and RGM-89M shown): The upper right picture (Translator's note: Referring to the RGM-89S) is an illustration shown in 'Mobile Suit Gundam MS Collection B-CLUB SPECIAL'. Its original mechanical designer is Mika Akitaka. Although it didn't equipped with the nuclear warhead, but from this design, we can see that the Unicorn version is also inherent its basic model. J type, R type, M type etc. are the models which various degree of modification, and make their appearance in F91, which is staged on UC0123. Although looking quite old at that time, Jegan remains on the first line despite being created for more than 30 years ago, which is a testament to their high basic performance.

Illustration 1 shows a Jegan D type.

Illustration 1 note 1: 'For reference use, I draw a picture of the original Jegan, but it's not a final draft.'

Illustration 1 note 2: Picture shows the Jegan after removed its removable armour. Although it's the original Jegan, it has been added with minor adjustment: not only the front waist is added with joints to connect the front skirt, modifications such as the shape of its backpack and cleanup the flat upper shoulders (for carrying the rocket launcher pack) has been done.

Weapons note 1 (Beam rifle shown):Stark Jegan use beam rifle. It's the same one that the Nemo used, and is the most standard weaponry.

Weapons note 2 (A much smaller beam rifle shown): Stark Jegan can also use the GM II, III use beam rifle without modification.

Weapons note 3 (two different beam rifles shown): 'I also draws the weapons used in F91 as a preparation, but it's unknown if they're going to use them in the novel'

Weapons note 4 (A bazooka shown): This is recoil less cannon with 380mm solid ammo, also known as the super bazooka. Can fitted with normal ammo or shatter ammo, depends on the different missions.

Weapons note 5 (another long barrel beam rifle shown): 'I think the firearms has been improved in that time when it comes to unified specifications. So I think it can also use the ReZEL's beam rifle.

Illustration 2 shows a Stark Jegan unfolded. It contains several parts, such as:
1. Breast armor
2. Face guard
3. Front skirt
4. Shin armor
5. Toes part
6. Heel part
7. Side skirt equipment (Note on it: The connection point on the side of the waist can put different equipments depends on the needs in the battlefield, for example grenade launcher or backup energy caps rack.
8. Calf Armor
9. Rear skirt
10. Tail stabilizer
11. Shoulder armor
12. Missile launcher unit

Illustration note 2: 'Mr Mika Akitaka's original draft shows the breast looks inseparable with the machine, but with the guideline of not changing the original Jegan's shape, I make it into several parts. About the nuclear warhead, since currently there is no plan for it to appear, so I didn't put it into the design.

RX-0 Unicorn Gundam "Banshee" looks so epic, even if there are only slight changes it looks far better then the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam.

I don't see a stickied topic for Unicorn, so I'll use this if asterphage doesn't mind.

Here is some custom lineart of Unicorn's RGM-86R GM III, with the cut-off portion of the shield reconstructed and most of the residual orange removed from the pic.
