The Advanced Banshee is the upgraded (i.e. advanced) version of the Banshee. It costs 45,000 cubits to upgrade the Banshee to its advanced version. It is the Cylon interceptor class escort ship. Upon advancing, the Advanced Banshee gains an additional 2 weapons slots (making a total of 6) and 1 additional engine slot (making a total of 5). It also gains an extra 420 hull points, an increase of 6 hull points per second to hull recovery, an extra 14,000 added to its durability, and an extra 100 to its base power.
These changes increase the Advanced Banshee's combat abilities increasing its chances of survivability. It is still best suited to use for hit and run strike tactic for, even with its increased abilities, the Advanced Banshee is still the weakest of the Cylon escort ships in general combat. It can still, however, fit the incredibly powerful Capital Blaster AC-42 for Outpost fights (see Banshee for direct stat numbers), and with the new weapon slots guaranteeing you being able to put at least 3 of them on a target, possibly 4 if you can get the reduced firing angles to work right, against Capitals you will out-damage every other ship type on the field.
"A recovered Banshee that has undergone extensive reconfiguration and reconstruction to incorporate the latest updates to Cylon ship manufacture and engineering techniques, resulting in a more powerful and effective combination of old and new. The Advanced Banshee's hull is stronger and more durable than the standard version, and it can mount additional weapon and engine systems."
