The idea of the hooks within the air force is not stopping an aircraft at full touchdown speed like it is at carrier ops… it is used for stop it at the end of the runway if nothing else works and no other arresting device is available, normally far below 170kts an F-16 has at touchdown…

I understand that fully. My comment was for those wondering and want to test it out, that they could then see WHY you should not land AF birds on carriers just because they have a hook. It is why I used "THEY" in my original statement.

Yes to tailhooks! I hope they model the runway arresting system as well, but just having the hook helps a bit with immersion.
