According to the Bangkok Post a Thai AF C130 made an emergency landing at Hat Yai in southern Thailand on Friday. It was stuck on the runway for 22 hours, closing the airport, before being taken to Wing 56's hangar for repairs which are expected to take 3-5 days. The article says "The aircraft developed trouble in its right rear landing gear. No injuries were reported".
It also says that the RTAF plans to acquire an undisclosed number of second hand C130H models for about 400 million baht each. Can't help with the s/n
