Speaking to Janes at the Vietnam International Defense Exhibition (VIDEX) 2022, which is taking place in Hanoi from 8 to 10 December, a representative from the service described the UAV as an equipment that was first developed by Viettel Military Industry and Telecoms Group (Viettel) for reconnaissance operations by border units.

The UAV is referred to by the PAV as the VUA-SC-3G and it began operations with the service in 2018. It has been developed by PAV, in collaboration with Viettel.
