Two questions regarding the A6M Zero (1) Were all models fitted with arrestor hooks? (2) Were the tail wheels retractable?

hi paul, the tail wheel wasn't retractable and i can't say for sure if they all had tail hooks. i would think if it was assigned to an island it would be removed to make it lighter but that is just my thought.
