I got through about the last three months of the game, once I'd gotten Titan Suits for everyone, with not only no losses but only one mission ending with hospitalisations because I just advanced carefully and overwhelmed small numbers at a time with plasma fire.
The one mission that did get hairy was a battleship assault, where one room had eight mutons, four berserkers and a sectopod (though I never had more than about 6 active at a time I kept triggering spawns as I spread out to avoid grenades). And all my guys still walked away, though my Assault did need to be revived (and he probably wouldn't if I hadn't gotten careless and been winged in an earlier part of the mission leaving him a bit more vulnerable).
