Mi-28 and AH-64 have independent PNVS thermal turrets on the nose that they control themselves, to assist with nighttime navigation.
AH-1Z does not: camera footage is a feed controlled from the gunner turret

Top is the pilot's night optics(PNVS), bottom is the gunner's targetting and acquisition system (TADS)

Okey. Goggled it little bit, you are right.
Another questions:
1) Why Mi-28 pilot cant switch on gunner camera like it is in AH-64 or AH-1Z?
2) Why AH-64 pilot cant switch back on day optic after selecting thermal optic in his PNVS?

1) RMB is the feed from the gunner's TADS on AH-64 while Ctrl+RMB is the PNVS. We don't have research material that shows that Mi-28 pilot has a feed from the gunner's optics, so only does Ctrl+RMB PNVS

2) Is an Arma 3 bug. The PNVS is supposed to be thermal-only, but Arma doesn't seem to be able to initialise anything but "normal" view on pilot cameras until the vision mode key is pressed.
