My understanding that those hooks are not just for emergency arrests. They are also used when landing on short field , and on expeditionary runways during wet , hot, high density altitude locations. Navy and Marines used to have, may still do, a shore based expeditionary catapult (steam), to assist high gross weight tactical aircraft departures.
