Most carriers have 4 cables for the aircraft tailhook to snag onto up on the flight deck. My question is this is there one arresting gear engine for each cable on the deck ? In other words 4 cables and 4 arresting gear engine and compartments. I worked at BOSTON NAVY YARD on arresting gear on the LEXINGTON CVT 16 and the INTREPID CVS 11. That was in the late 1960s and early 1970s and dont remember how many arresting gear engine compartments there were.
