I believe its pre MSCP.  V1.5 is pre 1981 if memory serves.  MSCP I
think was introduced
Qbus systems in the 80s just prior to the MicroVAX.

VAX-11/78-- was introduced in '78 and the next generation was around
1980 with the
730 and 750 for the small systems and the 782 and 785 for the larger ones.
