Discouraged, as could get caught in the mechanism, although Finnish AK clone has no trigger guard to allow operation in several pairs.

Very interesting; evidently in snow/cold it would be very necessary.  I would prefer having a glove caused jam rather than one involving my fingers, although I guess the reckoning would be an increased risk of gun failure overall. Of course Health & Safety on the battlefield is a bit of an oxymoron but given the general prevalence of handling gloves I am mildly surprised more use is not made of them.  Is there a fear that artillery rounds might get dropped or slip through the fingers? Do tankers not use them?

Will this one do ?Idea

That would do nicely.

Mortars tend to go into action without gloves, unless in Arctic conditions. Beyond that, gloves and boots are the most debated item of modern kit and swapping items with Allied forces is a frequent thing .. everyone else has been stuff.

Presumably we are talking about late 20th/early 21st century soldiers.  The British army issued woollen glove, actually man-made of the kind that melted when they burned.  I never saw anybody wearing them that I remember, except on guard duty in barracks.  In Northern Ireland a black leather glove was issued.  I got my first pair in about 1974, just at the end of my first tour as I was leaving for Germany.  They were soft black leather, quite snug fitting, with padded knuckles, the padding being filled with lead powder which gave them some weight.  I got a second pair 'Mk 2' in 1980.  They were the similar but the padding was sponge.  Neither were very hard wearing and were only supposed to last a single tour.  They also soaked up water and didn't keep hands very warm.  They morphed into a combat glove sometime in the 1980s which was general issue.  They were also black leather but with no padding.  I used mine for gardening after I retired from the army in 1993.  If your unit was part of the Allied Mobile Force (Land) which deployed to the NATO flanks, you'd get issued mittens when deploying to Norway, and other specialised arctic kit.
