Is there any benefit to having Elite cards that I'm missing?
elite units, are units with a new skin. They don't have any other benefits, as this would destroy the balancing. You can buy them for units that you really like to play in your fleet to set them apart or you can obtain them randomly in a booster. If you don't need the skin, just salvage it to get Matter and buy other units with it.
