From 'Israel Defence':

"Israel Aerospace Industries teamed up with Airbus, which is competing with Thales to supply a military spy satellite to Vietnam. The French government is still trying to split the pie between the French giants in the deal that will be worth hundreds of millions of dollars if it goes through.

A report by intelligenceonline claims that the leader of Vietnam, Nguyen Phu Trong, who is general secretary of the country's communist party, decided to order a military observation satellite with a resolution of up to 50cm from Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI). 

Vietnam's satellite program, called VNREDSat-2, includes both military and civilian components. The competition for the military contract got underway in earnest in 2018 between Lockheed Martin, IAI and a consortium of Airbus Group, and a subsidiary of Thales."
