In the Sorenson's Sabres scenario pack (which, I think, introduced Palmer Conti to the BattleTech universe) Conti's bio takes up two thirds of page 11, with the third column of text starting the writeup for his 5th Sword of Light regiment. At the bottom of that page is an image of a man in what seems to be a DCMS dress uniform; I can't discern any rank on the epaulettes. I always assumed this image to depict Conti, but as I was going to scan and upload it I noticed literally for the first time that the image isn't captioned at all. Now I'm torn. I feel this must be Conti, but I can't back this impression up except with it being implied by the image's placement in the book. No detailed physical description for Conti is available to verify or falsify this assumption either. Opinions? Frabby (talk) 10:11, 8 October 2014 (PDT)

Hm, i have the same feeling as you, i think its Conti but there is no info, i hope the writers of the book put the right image to the Conti bio in the scenario pack.--Doneve (talk) 11:26, 8 October 2014 (PDT)
I've decided to be bold and add the image, clarifying that there is indication but ultimately no proof that this really is Palmer Conti. Frabby (talk) 00:51, 14 August 2015 (PDT)
