    In the video above the optics mounted have been covered up, which is suspicious. A Vietnamese news website reports them as using EOTech sights. Some non-lethal defense items and services can be exported to Vietnam if a license is granted, although I don’t know if licenses for optics would be approved.

    Vietnam has been known to illegally procure optics from the USA. Between 2004 and 2005 at least 55 night vision systems were exported illegally from the USA.
