Print on the chip clearly says QCA9880-AR1A. ID same as for v2 - 003C.

I don't know which fw blob version that is. I could not find it
online. All files are v2 related.

That would be too bad, even worse when you find out that
qca-wifi-10.2.4.58.1 driver fails to load firmware too. The only one
that works is qca-wifi that comes with tp-link firmware, some very
early version 10.0.108 or somtehing like that that has no available
sources..
