Production of the OSV-96 is supported by a collaboration arrangement with Russia’s Tula-based weapons manufacturer, the KBP Instrument Design Bureau, in line with Vietnam’s efforts to expand its defence industrial partnership with Russia, its primary military supplier.

Reports said KBP has transferred technologies to the Z111 factory to facilitate the licenced production project. The rifle is being supplied to the People’s Army of Vietnam (PAVN).
