Do you need veterans in order to complete elite campaigns 8-1 and on? I'm just getting wiped out every formation I try and my heros are all gold.

With persistence, luck and the right brigades and formations etc, it is beatable with Troopers. I got 3 stars and didnt have all military researches maxed and not golden gear. It is hard though. If you do automatic battles, you might need veterans though
