2. Magnetic catapult. I hope it works in the field! New tech, lots of unperceived problems happen.

3. I've seen four "cold-cats". All resulted in LOA, and all aircrews were recovered without injury.

I was on deck for all four.

5. Less moving parts, less wear and tear items. Should work fine in the long run.

4. From what I have read, maintenance on steam catapults is a major issue

If this tech works, it will perform better and be lower cost. Navy has been working on it for quite some time.
